Lake Powell, Utah

At this point in the trip we needed a little break from climbing to let our bodies heal.  Joanna’s wrist tendonitis had been getting much worse in the past month and needed time off.  Luckily for us southern Utah has plenty of non tendon injuring adventures to be had.  We also have been travelling with fishing gear that rarely gets used so it was about time for a fishing trip.  We headed to the Glen Canyon National Recreation area where we camped, fished, and soaked in the beauty of Lake Powell for a week.
