Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon is one of the most visited and photographed slot canyons in North America. The canyon is high on the list of the top things to do at Lake Powell. It is a a 30-minute drive from the Lake Powell to Antelope Canyon. There are two canyons to choose from, Lower Antelope Canyon and Upper Antelope Canyon. Upper Antelope Canyon is more accessible and better for people with any type of mobility issue. The Lower Canyon has more walking and you will have to be able to go down five flights of stairs and eventually go up another eight. The Canyons are located on Navajo Nations land and you must take a tour to see the canyons.

Rainbow Bridge National Monument

Sacred Rainbow Bridge National Monument in Utah is a spectacular world wonder. It is the tallest natural bridge in North America. Access this amazing sight by traveling 50 miles/80 kilometers on a two-hour boat ride on Lake Powell and then walking about 1.25 miles/2 kilometers to the bridge. Two tours are offered each day during the busy season. The tours are eight hours long. Hiking to Rainbow Bridge is possible, but the trail is about 18 miles/30 kilometers. A permit is required to explore the back-county.

Horseshoe Bend

Iconic Horseshoe Bend is an extremely busy place. Try to avoid the rush of visitors between 9 am and 6 pm. Improvements have recently been made to the area. A safe viewing platform with rails has been installed and a new accessible trail created. The parking area has been expanded and a parking fee has been implemented. Use extreme caution when viewing the rim from areas where the safety rails have not been installed. Make sure to keep an eye on your children. This can be a very dangerous place, remember that there is a 1,000 feet/305 meter drop to the Colorado River below.

Glen Canyon Dam 
The Dam is an energy and water source to millions of people in the western United States. Construction of the dam on the Colorado River created Lake Powell as a water storage area. Glen Canyon Dam is the second highest concrete-arch dam in North America. It rises 710 feet/216 meters. The Hoover Dam, just outside Las Vegas, Nevada, is higher by 16 feet/4.9 meters. Construction of the dam started in October 1956 and was completed September 13, 1963. The power plant then began its construction with the first generator firing September 4th, 1964. All eight generators were finally in full operation during 1966. Stop by the Carl B. Hayden Visitor Center. It offers a great view of the dam and bridge. Tours of the power plant and dam are available.

Glen Canyon National Recreational Area

Glen Canyon National Recreational Area stretches over 1.25 million acres, all the way from just south of Lees Ferry in Arizona to the top of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. It boasts dramatic landscape features rich in ancient history. It encompasses Lake Powell and shares its border with Grand Canyon National Park, Rainbow Bridge National Monument, Canyonlands National Park and Capitol Reef National Park.
