Here are the last of my Lake Powell shots. Actually I have many more, but these are the best, I think. So hard to choose.
That's us over there on the shoreline on the left hand side of the photo.
A closer view. The house boat is beached with anchors. No tides to worry about here. Anchors always are a source of concern when we have sailed off the California coast. Haven't done that for a long time. But the tides and wind -- and other boaters, make anchoring a tricky thing. We would usually set turns at anchor watch if we were anchoring overnight.
The scenery at Lake Powell is spectacular for miles and miles.
Red sandstone sculpted into all kinds of weird and wonderful shapes.
The best time to take photos is when the sun is creating shadows and that wasn't always the case when I took these photographs...
...so I had to adjust them a little. But just look at the reflections!
This was one cave that is a favorite -- very deep. Owen decided to dive in and investigate.
Just look at these striations -- just like molten rock frozen in time!
This one is interesting because if you look closely you can make out what looks like an angel carved into the rock, just to the left of the shadow. Of course it is known as Angel Rock.
And this is one of my favorite shots of the whole trip -- both my sons deep in conversation about the course home at sunset and the performance of the boat.
Both of them are very experienced sailors and pretty handy with mechanics too. Level-headed and not likely to take chances, they have been keen sailors since they were young teens and have carried this love until now in their mid-life. They have owned boats since they were old enough to buy their own and every summer vacation is spent on the water somewhere.
