L to the P – Part II

You’ve been waiting on the edge of your chair, I know. But it has all been worth it! Part II is the most exciting part… think Indian Jones on a valium at a family reunion.

Like I said, it rained a lot during our Lake Powell weekend. ABOMINATION!, you might be saying. While it was a soggy trip, I don’t know that I would have traded it for sun. I was able to see and experience things that wouldn’t have been possible had been been dry.

On Friday, Mr. N and I decided to do a little exploring. We left the houseboat and within 10 minutes, discovered a waterfall pouring into a lake canyon. We hiked up beyond the canyon and discovered an amazing set of pools and waterfalls flowing and full from the storm. I can honestly say that is was like nothing I had ever seen before, at least in person. There were a number of natural waterfall/stream thingies (that’s the technical term) that I would have loved to have transported into my own backyard.

As we continued to follow the water upstream, we discovered a small narrow canyon. It was a point in which we would have to go back, or get wet to continue. For the next hour we proceeded forward by swimming through the pools and climbing up waterfalls.

Amazing! I am so glad that we decided to go on this little adventure, and I couldn’t have had a better exploration partner :). And the view was just as beautiful on the hike back. There is a reason Lake Powell is one of my most favorite places on earth.

So now you’re thinking that it couldn’t get better, right? Well, it did. And you can read about it in part III.
