I had the opportunity to visit Page, Arizona last week. There are several beautiful sites within a few hours drive, such as the Grand Canyon, Monument valley, Rainbow Bridge and Bryce Canyon. I saw none of those. There were plenty of things to do and see within 15 minutes of my motel. Limiting drive time was an important part of my vacation plan.

There were only a few boats out that day, and it is a big lake, so it was not a problem. There was no launch fee, so, I will go back.
Have you explored anywhere new lately?
