Arizona Trip - Day 2 (Glen Canyon Dam Tour & Horse Shoe Bend)


After driving the RV for nearly 7 hours on the first day, I dropped the visit to "Zion National Park" from my plan.

We got up very late. We were amazed by the view of the Canyons surrounding Lake Powell, from the campground. I signed-up for the Navajo Canyon Ferry tour for the next day. Unfortunately, the tour to the Rainbow Bridge was not available. We went to Glen Canyon Dam for the dam tour. Glen Canyon dam tour was nice. The tour guide showed us the interiors and also the power plant. We had our lunch and then went to Antelope Canyon. We took a few snaps of the upper Antelope Canyon from the parking lot. We didn't hike there.

We then stopped over at Horse shoe bend. After a 3/4 mile hike, you get a spectacular view of the horse shoe bend. You can see the greenish Colorado river 1000 ft down. It was quite amazing. There was a sand storm and my daughter got frightened because of the cold weather and the sand storm. We took a few pictures there and returned to the campground at about 4 pm. We stayed in Page for that night also.
