I woke up early on Wednesday morning because I was heading North on a road trip. I loaded up the car with an overnight bag and headed out by about 7:30 that morning. I drove the 30 some-odd miles to Flagstaff on the most winding road you can imagine in the rain. Yes, I said rain. I know...It never rains in Arizona! And let me tell you, rain was not a welcomed sight considering what I had planned for the day.
Once I got into Flagstaff, the said rain turned to sleet. Then said sleet turned to snow. Now this girl loves her some snow, but snow was also not a welcomed sight considering plans.
I continued north in Arizona to Page. Finally once I got to Page, the rain tapered off and I made my way to the Glen Canyon Dam & Lake Powell. There is a visitors center there, but I didn't bother with that. I was on a tight schedule and I wanted to see several things before I had to be somewhere. I walked out over the bridge and took some photos.
Here is the Dam holding back Lake Powell...
