Lake Powell, USA


 Rainbow Bridge Monument is the world's highest natural bridge. It's Located in southern Utah, USA.




To get to Rainbow Bridge, one must take a boat. We took a boat from Waheap Marina, Lake Powell. It's Located on the Arizona side near Page, AZ.

Lake Powell is man-made. The water came from the Colorado River and it took 11 years to fill up these canyons.

    1. Thank you Lúcia! I agree 11 years seems like a lot of time...it's a big giant bath tub now.;)

  3. I agree with Lucia, Sandy. This is so different from the Pacific Northwest, where the main colors seem to be green and grey! Love this beautiful light. One day, one day... I will make my way there. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

    1. Hi RedPat. I think they should name one of these rocks after your name. It would really have a nice flow...here is the 'RedPat' Rock formation...

    By the way, I like the new little saying on your blog header! LOL

    1. Bonjour Veronique. Thanks for the award. I'm not sure what it is but I like it already. I have to admit...I'm not blogging much these days. Probably once a month...and it's more of a travel album. Again merci. xx
