Wednesday morning we went to Page to do some shopping and sight seeing. It is quite a shock to leave the North Rim and 65 deg. and get out at our first stop Marble Canyon and it is 101 deg., at 11:00 am. The Marble Canyon Bridge, over the Colorado River, opened an eastern route to the canyon, prior to 1923 the route from the south had travelers going several hundreds of miles around the west side of the canyon and then back east. Here are pictures up the Colorado River and the old bridge; the new bridge is to the left.
The Upper Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon which is about a 1/4 mile long. The colors are amazing and each bend in the walls brings a different light into the canyon. Our guide was very knowlegeable about cameras and the settings needed to take quality photos in the canyon. I took many photos, most were not so good but I will post some good ones:
Yesterday, after dinner I played some volleyball with our co-workers. It was a lot of fun and I did not get hurt; always a positive.
Sherri and I hope all of you have a safe and Happy Independence Day!!!
