On Saturday, we drove up to Lake Havasu City. Wow! The drive up took about 2 hours, and the scenery was gorgeous. One thing I have found about Arizona, is that the scenery looks different around every bend in the road.
The first place we stopped was Parker Dam, in Parker, Arizona:
The other day when we were in Page, we went to some scenic viewpoints. I promised to put some pictures here, so here they are:
This was the beginning of the trail to Horseshoe Bend Canyon. It was uphill, yeah. About 1/4 mile to the edge of this canyon, but…..
If you click on this picture to make it bigger, and look very very closely, you will see some people standing on the edge of the canyon. That is where we were going to go. But, if you also look at the center of this picture, just beyond the canyon, you will see a huge thunderstorm. And there was huge lightening coming out of that cloud and going down to the ground. Nope, not me, I don’t do thunderstorms.
After we walked back to the truck, we went over to the scenic viewpoint with a nice view of the Glen Canyon Dam. We went on the tour of the dam a few weeks ago when we were in Page last time, but this is a different view of the area. See that railing? It was on the way back UP. Yeah, uphill again. We went all the way up because we had to–we went all the way down. Now try to imagine walking up that trail, wearing new prescription sunglasses with bifocals in them. Not an easy task. I didn’t let go of the rail once!
