Great Basin to Lake Powell

From our home in San Diego, including the miles driven around the parks while there this was a 2,280-mile Great Basin to Lake Powell Road Trip

It was a long lonely drive through the Great Basin Desert and we were surprised by the terrain when we got to the park. There were mountains, lakes, streams, and forests to explore.

We did a lot of driving in the park and we enjoyed the Fruita Area, Hickman Bridge, and the switchbacks on Burr Trail Road.

Stop 3: Lake Powell and the Wahweap Marina

We have been to Page, Arizona many times, this time for 4 days. There is so much to do around Page between the many geologic features, Navajo Tribal Land, and the lake. The highlight was the trip to Rainbow Bridge.
