Page, Arizona- September 26, 2012

This morning we packed up, hooked up the car and by 9am were pulling out of the campground.  Unfortunately, as Tom tried to turn around a corner in the campground he was unable to make the turn without backing up and backing up with a tow vehicle is not possible.  So we had to unhook the car.  Then Tom could back up and renegotiate the turn and get out of the campground where we rehooked-up the car.  Oh, you'll have days like this!  Once on the road and 123 scenic miles we were in Page, Arizona 2 hours later.  We checked into Page-Lake Powell Campground and then went out for lunch at the Ranch House Grille.  The food was good - Tom had chicken fajitas that had more chicken than peppers and onions.  From lunch we drove to the Glen Canyon Dam and Visitor's Center.  We arranged to go on a tour of the dam that took us down inside the dam where the turbines are located.  After the tour we rode to the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, an area around Lake Powell that includes campgrounds and marinas.  A ranger advised us that the best place to watch the sunset was at the Wahweap overlook so we made a point of going to that overlook in the evening and were not disappointed.
