This is our third day at Lone Rock Primitive Campground, on Lake Powell. Lone Rock is part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Admittance was free with the National Parks Pass, and camping is $10.00 a day. There are no hookups here, just toilets and water. there was a storm coming in when we arrived Wednesday, and the ranger recommended that we stay up on the bluff away from the water until the storm passed. He said the wind would blow the sand all through the motorhome.
The wind died had calmed down this morning, but we decided to stay where we are. High up on the bank.
We could have moved down to the water where there are quite a few campers. You can see Lone Rock.
We are glad we stayed where we are, we have enough dirt tracked in with three dogs, we didn’t need the sand too.
We have a great view
We will be in this area for a few more days, we are waiting on a new satellite receiver, that my sister Liz has sent by UPS, it is supposed to arrive here on Wed. We don’t know what happened to the other receiver, it was working fine last year, Croft tried to help us figure out what was wrong, but evidently it is toast. Shaw our satellite provider won’t ship out of Canada, so Croft suggested having some one shipped one down.
There are worse places to be waiting, Lake Powell is beautiful, the weather is decent now. Today we went to look at the Glen Canyon Dam, which was completed in 1966.
The Colorado River The Navajo Bridge
When the Colorado River was dammed ,160,000 acre Lake Powel was formed.
We plan to do some exploring of this area and do a bit of hiking while we are waiting, for our receiver.
Can you see the man with the hat?
