Flying over Lake Powell
Before visiting the west, I read a lot.
In most readings, Lake Mead was a must see. From the air we can have the idea of the importance of Hoover dam, and the challenge that its construction must have been.
However, from the air, the views of Lake Powell are more impressive.
A real wonder! And it must be very interesting the boat trip to rainbow bridge, meandering in the rocks.
Rainbow bridge – Only from the air
Seen from the plane in our way from the Grand Canyon to Monument Valley, Rainbow Bridge seems a small accident in nature.
Of course, it isn’t, and it was one of the strongest reasons why I was sorry the plane couldn’t land everywhere. It must be impressive, watching the arch from the ground, but I had no time for those long hours needed to drive there.
