~~ Houseboat at Lake Powell ~~ 2010

I feel so priveledged to be able to travel so many beautiful places in the world . . . Hawaii, Europe, South America . . .

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.

What fun!! We have only been there once but we loved it!! It was a lot of fun, the only thing I didn't like were the bats at night. Did you have those?

My favorite picture is the one looking up at the cave walls. So cool!!

I wanted to express that it is huge to know that someone spoke of this as I had tribulations finding out the same informations in another place. Your subject was the earliest place that gave me the info . Thanks.

As a final point , give permission me thank you for your tolerance with my English as (I'm certain you have figured this at this moment ,), English is not my main tongue accordingly I am utilizing Google Translate to figure out how to record what I really wish to write .
