We spent the morning in Page, AZ doing chores such as laundry, more groceries and such.
While Martha stayed at camp doing her crosstich, I went out on Yagi to see if I could find the way to Warm Creek Bay on Lake Powell.
I went perhaps 16-17 miles and finally got to the shore of a bay on Lake Powell; however I missed Warm Creek Bay, ending up south of it. Oh well.
On the way there I paused for pics of the rock formations along Crosby Canyon:
The last mile or so was deep sand in long stretches, it made for some interesting moments but I’m happy to report no falls and only a minimum of outrigger activity by me.
Finally spotted and found the trail leading to the shore/beach:
I’d worked up a bit of sweat riding in the low 80s temperature so I stripped down to shorts for a couple of quick dips in the cool water of the lake. Ahhhh.
Soon, it was time to gear up again and head back. I had to “assist” Yagi in getting off the beach at a particularly deep sandy spot. Other than that, it was pretty much smooth riding all the way back, stopping for pics in the canyon again:
As I motored along Smoky Mountain Rd, which traverses the Nipple Bench, I spotted and tried for a shot of distant buttes. They’re in a valley through which US Highway 89 runs.
One last stop at the top of the cliff side overlooking our camp site.
Can you spot Uma?
About three hours of riding/exploring…a good way to end a pretty good day.
Here’s a video shot by Martha this evening:
