Lake Powell

September 22nd, 2013

Today I’m here to tell you about one of the most amazing summer destinations I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The place, Lake Powell, and yes, it kicks ass! Have you been? If not, do yourself a favor and put it on your bucket list.

Lucky for me, my Uncle Joe has had Lake Powell on his bucket list for a solid decade now. And with nothing short of a little can do attitude (and some $$$ of course) we made it happen this year! I had heard of Powell, but honestly, I didn’t know how phenomenal it truly is. Even leading up to our scheduled departure, I didn’t really understand how amazing of an adventure I was about to embark on.
What I did know, was that I was set up for the trip of a lifetime! Traveling with my amazing lady friend, best friends from childhood and family members on a houseboat for a long weekend, we were simply destine for success.

The trip started with a hefty 12 and a half hour drive to Page, Arizona where we all rendezvoused the night before we inhabited the houseboat. It was dark upon our arrival, so we eagerly awaited morning to see what landscape surround us. We awoke the next morning to amazing views; Enormous cliffs ascended straight from the water’s emerald surface and cluttered the horizon line. The black, red, orange and white hue’s of sandstone melted into the water creating an almost fictional landscape.

Needless to say, the crew was fired up and there was an overall feeling of excitement and anxiousness as we eagerly awaited to board the boat. Now I could sit here and continue to blah, blah, blah about Lake Powell all day, but instead I will just show you. Some people say a picture is worth a thousand words. So with that in mind, I’m going to save you the agony of having to read thousands more of my words, and instead share with you the story of our houseboating trip through these photos.
