Lake Powell, Arizona
We arrived at Whaweap Campground around 4:30 Saturday afternoon. This time of year, as expected, would be quite a different scene from the summer months on the lake. We pulled into the campground with 3 neighbors on site, and as each day passed people would come and go. Some were passing through on their way home, and some like us were road tripping the country. We met people from New York, New Mexico, and even Canada.
The second we finished setting up camp we decided it was time venture around the lake. The wildlife in Lake Powell is amazing. We spotted a coyote right away and have seen some of the most unique
We still spotted a lot of fishermen, and the occasional tourists passing through the park. Regardless of the time of year, Lake Powell is beautiful. Our second day here we ventured out to check out an amazing spot known as the Horseshoe Bend in Page, Arizona ten minutes away from Whaweap Campground.
Of course the first things we had to consider was, can we bring our dog Bailey for the hike? Of course that was a no brainer, so we hopped on the shuttle and away we went. Side note, having a pet while traveling has its limitations. Some places won’t allow pets and some are beyond pet friendly.
After about 2 hours of taking in the sites we decided to head back to camp. We made a quick stop at the gas station nearby for gas and some firewood. Upon checkout, we got a facetime call from Brookes Mom & Dad. Of course, we already missed them and we knew they missed us, so they made a surprise visit to camp with lunch for us! We couldn’t have been more excited to see their faces! We spent the better part of the afternoon eating enchiladas and sharing a few cocktails over a mid day fire. The dogs played, we played (flying drones) and shared the little bit of the adventure we had started, with them.
By the time they left, it was time for us to get ready to settle in for the night, take a shower, make some dinner, and relax. Every site is different when it comes to their shower and bathroom accommodations. This site specifically requires you to pay to shower ($2.00/ 15 minutes) QUARTERS ONLY. Plus side was it was empty so we didn’t have to wait to shower. The downside was for 5 of those 15 minutes we spent trying to heat the water.
Our final full day at Lake Powell was best spent organizing the trailer and car to have things more accessible and accommodating to our now, everyday lifestyle on the road. So now we are all packed and ready to head to Sedona in the morning! Any recommendations on places to go or things to do in Sedona we would love any suggestions! Can’t wait to continue sharing this journey with all of you!
