Desert Boat Ride

Lake Powell, Page, Arizona

What do you do to keep cool when you are in the desert?  How about taking a 2-hour boat ride to a National Monument. You can't do that in every desert you visit but you sure can when you visit Page, Arizona. The ride in question travels along man-made Lake Powell and ends at Rainbow Bridge National Monument.  Along the way, you see some of the most amazing rock formations like this one. The scenery never stops and when you leave the lake to get to Rainbow Bridge, you enter a very small canyon where the boat barely fits through (you can literally reach out and touch the walls).  After visiting the monument, you can look forward to seeing the scenery once again.
