Road Trip Vlog Day 6 - Paddle + Play

Day 6 began with a nice stand up paddle session through Wetherill canyon in Lake Powell.  Jon and Adam take a journey through the left/east side of the canyon in to a cove that keeps going and going and finally finishes with a large boulder that has fallen and become wedged between the canyon walls.  Jon and Adam have to duck under the boulder to keep going, but the canyon dead ends shortly after.  After the paddle, the group takes a trip to Rainbow Bridge natural arch and does the hike to the monument and back to the boat.  All in all, a wonderful day on the lake… especially after the fantastic monsoon storm the previous day.

Road Trip Vlog Day 5 - Storm on Lake Powell!

Finally!  A descent storm!  We’ve been looking forward to the monsoons that occur on Lake Powell, which is why we take such great care to anchor the houseboat, speedboat and Jet Ski’s so we don’t end up in a bad situation.  The Houseboat is so Large that it ends up acting like a sail in the wind and can blow away if you aren’t careful to secure it to the shore (we’ve learned our lesson in the past).  This day was quite relaxing as we watched the storm unfold and the thunder and lightning entertain us from the top of the boat.  We were anchored at Wetherill Canyon in Beautiful Lake Powell.

Road Trip Vlog Day 2 - Jon and Cari Launch at Powell

Day 2 of our trip started off with launching the speedboat and two jetskis, then driving the houseboat out to Face Canyon where we set up camp for the night.  We love the scenery of Face Canyon and it has a very unique looking set of rocks that have slid down a cliff and collected at the bottom of the cliff.  It is a good landmark while traveling Lake Powell, as some of the scenery can get monotonous and eventually it all looks the same!

This was Captain Pete’s First day on The Stand Up Paddle Board and he was falling all over the place.   The board is too small for him, especially to learn on, but I’m confident that in a couple of days he will get the board to work for him once his balance adapts to the conditions.  The water is plenty smooth and should cooperate.  Lake Powell is the perfect place to Learn to Stand Up Paddle.
