Wayne and I came to Wahweap Resort Campground on Lake Powell without a hint as to what's here. Thinking we might visit Zion and Bryce National Parks and the Grand Canyon, we were just looking to get into the area for a place to set up camp for a week or two. Imagine our surprise when we drove through the small town of Page, Arizona, rounded a curve and saw this ahead of us.
|Glen Canyon Dam was dedicated by Lady Bird Johnson on September 22, 1966.|
|Yours truly giving depth perception to the distance to the Colorado River below the dam.|
|We found there's lots more to do around Glen Canyon, Page and Lake Powell than just raft the river.|

|There are many excellent viewpoints for the dam, the bridge and Lake Powell.|
This picture was taken well below the dam. Page is to the right, Lake Powell and Wahweap Campground is in the far background.
