The EPIC View
Arizona, The USA
icon-road Grand Circle Road Trip / Part. 6
icon-camera Horseshoe Belt, there is the EPIC remarkable amazing view! as you see the photo.
Everyone visits at the point says “wow” for 100%. Even people are amazed by the photos of the view, I believe. It is well known for people who research about Grand Circle Road Trip, because it is near from such a famous places like Antelope, Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. The long beautiful blue Colorado river just comes through beautiful peaceful big lake “Lake Powell”. If you plan to take Grand Circle Road Trip, you have to visit the spectacular nature art.
This article is written about Horseshoe Bend & Lake Powell (access, map, information & photos).

It is easy to access, just need to park at the parking, and walking for 15 ~ 20 minutes on sand & rock way from the parking area. It was bit longer than people expected, but not so hard. You need to bring water for hydration at least.
~ This is what I wanted to see.. yes this is it! Finally, I came here. As people who read my past article Horseshoe Canyon Unit know how I wanted to come here. The great sight took my breath away. The sunlight, wind, sand, river, rocks,,, the everything what I felt was precious, luck and appreciation.

Lake Powell / Beautiful Peaceful Blue
Lake Powell 1
icon-picture-o Lake Powell is very peaceful and beautiful place with clear blue water & sky. The water comes from Colorado river, and goes to Horseshoe Bend ~ Grand Canyon. Many people who love water activities (sailing, kayaking and so on) come here, and spend good times.
icon-home There is a camp site in the park. (Entry fee for an each car + Camping fee). From Lake Powell, it is easy to access to Horseshoe Bend, so most of the people who stay there visit Horseshoe Bend too.

Night Is Coming At Power Plant
~ We headed to a north camp-site nearby tho, we were not sure the exact place. We only had a rough map. (A kind lady told and pointed it for us) hmm… Keeping life with not sure a place to stay everyday is super hard…
After a while, we realized that the camp site is in a park at Lake Powell. “Oh will we pay again for the entry? ahh shit…shit.” (always we face problems of money and time.) The stress has definitely been getting bigger step by step. BUT the gate booth was opened and no body was there… We took it as “go ahead as free”. Well, I think I should not mention this but for backpackers “most of the National Parks’ gates are opened and no stuffs in the night.”
Lake Powell 2
~ In the morning, it was cold air tho so nice sunny! also for some reason a guy gave us some apples at the camp site. (didn’t happen of Snow White tragedy haha) It should be good day. It should be.
Lake Powell 3
~ The sight was sure great, peaceful and beautiful. But honestly we saw super amazing view, spectacular sight too much before we came here thorough our road trip. We did not spend time here much, we just took some photos and left here. bye bye Lake Powell.
Glen Canyon Dam / Human Work In The Great Nature
Glen Canyon Dam
icon-anchor There Is A Big Dam, at nearby the entrance of Lake Powell. You might want to see it when you have some time. There is a visitor center next by the dam also, so it will be good place to get some information around the area too. The visitor center also explains how human built the huge dam in the great nature.

Power Plant In The Nature
~ The new day has begun. We go to next direction “Antelope Canyon”. The end of road trip was closer little by little. Keeping traveling is really hard, but we have been amazed in each days. We kept going with holding many thoughts, memories and stress were mixed together complicatedly one.
