But one of my favorite places anywhere is right in my own backyard practically . . .
It's Lake Powell in the Southern Central Utah area. We have a timeshare in a houseboat there and enjoy spending 1-2 weeks each summer there with friends and family. We all look forward it every year with great anticipation.
Here's the VERY BEST of our LAKE POWELL trip for this summer. I had hundreds of photos to choose from, and you'll probably see more specific posts later, but here's the highlights of this summer's adventure.
Sunsation - the Houseboat - We LOVE it!
it was one BIG slumber party every night - we all wanted to sleep on top of the boat so we we could see the star show every night
lots of game playing in between the water fun!
getting ready to head out on some boating adventures
looking straight up at the cliffs from the houseboat . . .
bodies were flying off the top of the houseboat almost continually . . .
getting ready for water skiing behind the jetski
we had our own personal swimming pool - and it was a big one!
so much time with cousins - cute girls everywhere you look :D
a little cliff jumping in the afternoons
couldn't resist the stow away peeking out from the neighbor boat at the marina . . .
Our own version of "Minute to Win it!"
the plastic cup challenge . . .
the get the Oreo cookie from your forehead to mouth challenge . . .
A hike to the restored ruins in Forgotten Canyon
we had to swim the mosquito, shark invested waters of the marsh to access the climb to the ruins . . .
Here we are after viewing all the ruins - there's a great view of the canyon from here!'
The "Captain" on vacation . . .
The "Captains wife" on vacation (ME!) - all sunburned and harried!
We lost a few people who had to leave before we took a nice group photo :(
We miss you Kelsie and David!
Heading off into the sunset - everything is packed up and ready to return home.
We hope we can return soon!!
