FINALLY!! A mini-vacation :)
On Labor day, We got up early and got ready for the 2+ hour drive to the Utah border. Lake Powell is in Arizona and Utah. It actually is quite a big section and Lake Powell is just a small part of it. Its very veiny
and there are many little nooks and crannies to drive your boat to or hike to.
|We are so close! We can see it!|
|Bridge right next to the Powell Damn|
|Very impressive construction. The water on the other side was almost non-existent!|
So we decided to see how busy the actual private swimming beach was and to our surprise, there was only a handful of people there. Considering it was the middle of the day, hot and a holiday, I was super surprised!
We took advantage of this and set up our chairs and snacks and spent a good 5 hours at this spot, getting out occasionally to eat our lunch, drink water, and have snacks and a couple :)

I have only driven through the lower part of Utah and it was almost dark so I really have never been to Utah to visit and even this didn't really count as I took a picture of the sign and a few miles up the road, we turned around. It still counts though, right? :)
All in all, it was a wonderful excursion for my husband and I. We got home exhausted and happy :)
