Each year on our Founder's Circle Trip we are treated to a most amazing "event'.. we never know what it will be, or where, but this year the Event Staff DELIGHTED AND AMAZED us with a float trip down a 3 hour portion of the Colorado River!!  We launched right below the Glen Canyon Dam at the base of Lake Powell, and floated for 3 hours (insert singing here... "a 3 hour tour, a 3 hour tour") :) down Glen Canyon on the Colorado River!!

The photos speak for themselves.. God's amazing handiwork shows at every twist and turn on this river!

We launched right at the base of the Glen Canyon Dam.. Lake Powell is on the other side of this dam.

We went over this bridge above the dam to get here... the Glen Canyon Dam Bridge is 700 feet above the river... wow!!

Behind the dam is Lake Powell.

The water comes from the bottom of the lake under the dam and into the Colorado River.. so the water is super cold.... 47 degrees!!!! 

The weather was warm - in the 90's - but the breeze off the water was delightful as we moved..

The photos are absolutely beautiful! What a fun surprise! I don't know how I would have been able to cross that bridge - I am so afraid of heights! Wishing you a happy day!

Lucky duck! Looks amazing!

Looks like gorgeous weather and a spectacular view! That was so funny, a 3 hour tour-I hadn't thought about that program in years. Yet, I think any one of us who grew up with it could not have heard that song in years, but still know all the words. Too funny!


Looks like a wonderful day and trip!

Patty, you did it again, award winning photos. Always love the reflection of the hills on the water.

Beth B

Wow - very impressive. Such beautiful pictures. Such an amazing trip.

Kim Smith

If you think the sites were wonderful floating on the Colorado River after the dam, you should see the canyons off Lake Powell. If you ever get the opportunity to visit Lake Powell I would suggest not to miss it. So beauitful! Your wonderful pictures capture the reflections on the water so well! So glad you are having fun!
