We visited Page after we’d been to the Grand Canyon in 2009. Between 1960 and 1963, the Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona was constructed, resulting in the creation of Lake Powell – though it took a further 17 years for the lake to fill to capacity. Page was originally a camp for the dam workers, and it’s a fairly nondescript town even now, but in beautiful surroundings. It’s the best base for boat trips on the Lake (if you don’t hire a houseboat that is) which take you to view Rainbow Bridge, the world’s largest natural bridge at 290 feet high with a span of 275 feet. On the outskirts of town you can also visit Antelope Canyon, only a few feet wide and sometimes called Corkscrew Canyon for obvious reasons.
From here, we went on to U is for Utah.
