04/15/2014 Tax Day on the Colorado River Below Glen Canyon Dam, Page, Arizona
(Apr 15, 2014)
We decided to take a rafting trip down the Colorado River between Glen Canyon Dam and Horseshoe Bend. The river is extremely calm in this stretch allowing picture-taking the entire way. The Colorado River Discovery Tours Company did a tremendous job in coordinating the many people who had booked the trip. Our guide was John Martin who made the trip entertaining for all. This album has been completed and no more photos will be added.

03/29/2014 Glen Canyon Dam, Page, Arizona
(Mar 29, 2014)
This was another stop at the end of a busy day visiting the Page area of Arizona. Glen Canyon Dam is an impressive structure backing up Lake Powell, all upstream from Grand Canyon National Park. Control of water flow which affects ecosystems through all the lower river channels bestows a huge responsibility on the shoulders of administrators to balance the production of electrical energy with the needs of the lower river. There is a continuous learning curve as time progresses. This album has been completed and no more photos will be added.

04/08/2014 Babylon Road Area of Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, Leeds, Utah
(Apr 8, 2014)
Getting in to this area is less of a problem with our F-150 4WD. Being able to drive on the sandy roads shortens the walk considerably. The beauty remains the same. This album has been completed and no more photos will be added.

03/29/2014 Upper Antelope Slot Canyon, Page, Arizona
(Mar 29, 2014)
We had wanted to visit this icon of the Southwest for a number of years so Beth checked into taking a tour. We made no reservations ahead of time. Upon arrival we found that there would be a wait to get a tour when suddenly there was a cancellation and we grabbed it immediately. There were only five of us plus our Navajo driver/guide, Deborah. Instead of having to ride in the back of a truck we comfortably rode in a nice van to the Upper Antelope Canyon entrance. She led an excellent tour and in spite of the many people going into and out of the canyon with different tours we found plenty of time to take photos and learn about the formation of this slot canyon. We enjoyed this well-managed tour very much and will return to visit the Lower Antelope Canyon in the near future. This album has been completed and no more photos will be added.

03/18/2014 SR-9 Through Zion National Park, Utah
(Mar 18, 2014)
No trip to the east of us is complete without driving through this beautiful piece of nature protected as Zion National Park. Today's entry was enjoyable as always but a bit more interesting because of the Bighorn Sheep we were able to photograph. This album has been completed and no more photos will be added.

05/25/2006 North Rim, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
(May 25, 2006)
This part of Grand Canyon National Park is closest to our home. The north rim is higher than the south rim and the road is closed in wintertime by snow. Good photography is more difficult because many of the views are in a southerly direction into the sun. The time of day is very important in the photographing of any particular area. It is a beautiful place to visit and well worth the time and effort to get there. This album has been completed and no more photos will be added. This album has been updated as of 03/21/2014.
