We decided to abandon the Grand Canyon idea the next day and go on to Lake Powell. Funny about cold or rainy weather. I want so settle in somewhere so I can be snug in the coach while the bad weather is all around. So, next morning we had breakfast with Joyce and Charlie, said our goodbyes 'till tomorrow and then headed out...

Page is not far from Tuba City so we didn't hook the truck to the coach. Instead, I drove it while Wayne drove Endie. When he pulled over to deflate the air mattress, I stopped too and rushed out to snap a picture of the rig with the matching colorful mountain in the background.
Driving into higher elevations we ran into snow about 20 miles out of Page. I wished I had my point and shoot Canon pocket camera in the cab of the truck but I made do with my phone camera -- using it like a point and shoot. Sometimes I just get lucky.

It was mid-afternoon when we reached Page first, then the Dam and finally Wahweap Campground along the shore of Lake Powell. Pam and Ernie were there already -- sitting out the rain and cold in their coach. We secured our site and set up. The four of us drove into Page for dinner.

As it always does, the rain did end and fair weather returned the next morning. Joyce and Charlie arrived safely and "Hell's Half Dozen" was, once again, ready to take in the sights. I resumed my morning walks and snapped some pretty good pictures around Wahweap Campground and Lake Powell.
