is one of those places off the tourist map.
will tell you more about this area than I can.
I fell in love with the whimsical rock
formations and the history 30+ years ago.
We left Lake Powell and took a day trip to
Lee's Ferry, near Marble Canyon.
Beautiful rock formations greet you at the entrance
It had rained hard the night before, giving
us muddy roads and amazing colors!
Wet rocks are much more colorful than dry rocks
Many Colorado River trips begin here!
There is also a nice campground available,
The weird rocks are everywhere!
So are the pretty colorful ones
There are several balancing rocks like
this one all around Lee's Ferry.
It's hard to imagine the
size of these rocks
Until you see Chuck under one of them!
Or me !
There is an area strewn with these oddball
rock formations on the way to the river
This sign explains how this happened.
You can click onto the photo to enlarge it.
Chuck and I enjoy travelling the roads less travelled!
This will be the last blog for a month or two.
We are heading back to Florida,
we will post a few blogs from there
as we intend to camp at several of Florida's
beautiful state parks.
We sincerely hope you have enjoyed riding
along with us, road tripping the real America! As Sandy said, "I feel like I have been hiding in your closet!"
We have had a ball this summer!
We both saw places we have never been before!
We love America and we would like to urge you
to get out and vote, take America back!
Happy Trails from The MotherShip and Crew!!
Geri, Chuck, Scotty and Doogie Bowser
