Arizona 100 degree plus weather + 45 degree water + the mighty Colorado River + 1500 ft deep canyon + meu amigao Andrew = One of the most amazing trips of my life!
We decided last minute to make this trip to Page, AZ and float the Colorado River from the Glen Canyon Dam to Lees Ferry. I have dreamed of doing this float trip since we visited Page in May and went to the Horseshoe Bend lookout. It wasn't until about a week ago that I learned it could easily be done. We even ended up camping at the bottom of Horseshoe Bend and surprisingly were the only ones there.
one the road...
We started the trip off the right way... with Taco Bell.
A raft shuttle took us up river from Lees Ferry to the bottom of Glen Canyon Dam.
