Glen Canyon is about a 45 minute drive from Page and pretty enough to be worth the effort. The day we visited was rainy and we watched several rafts head off into the canyon. It did not look like an ideal day on the river!

Everything in this area is breathtaking. The canyons, the plateaus, the sky - everything is amazing to see and photos will never do it justice.

Loved this scenic drive. The overlook to Colorado river is amazing and Sunset from this place is something to remember.

Nice views and is on the way to a lot of other things or getting in or out of the town. Seeing the dam is interesting and you can take a walk through the bridge as well.

We rented a houseboat and stayed a week. There is also a nice campground at Waheap. Lake Powell is huge and has a lot of great coves to explore, excellent fishing and great hiking as well. We will come back for sure.

Amazing sandstone structures just by the dam and aside the Colorado River. From the Hayden VC go north a trifle and turn left. You'll see some RV campers. Turn left into the free formed parking area and follow the stone bordered pathway. Stay with it...More
