LAKE POWELL '04, AZ-UT
Marina, not far from Page, AZ
The first fresh water beneath our Halcyon's hull was Colorado River water on Lake Powell - and it has been some of the most outstanding and memorable water anywhere. Halcyon was here in 2000, 2003 and 2004. We have written tales of our visits: Time and the River, Neighbors, Lakes of the Colorado, Rare Bird, Beauty and the Beast, Lake Powell '00, Lake Powell '03, and this tale.
Our visit here in April and May of 2004 began as a small gathering: Pat and Jon (on the raft Silverstreak), Sandy and Casey (Naknek) and Chris (Rana Verde). Chris had scheduled extra time so we had a lengthy and delightful cruise together.

Pat and Jon created a first: on a warm sunny beach, deep in Navajo Canyon, they produced ice cream from their pack to share with all.

Naknek had a native Arizonan (Sandy) on board and there was another first: her first time on Lake Powell. Chris created a marvelous setting for a tourmaline that he found in San Diego County. El made Pad Thai, and Bill finished off our last campfire, at a lonely anchorage far up West Canyon, with a bang - firecrackers left over from the Fourth of July in Wrangell, AK. What a time on Lake Powell. Pictures tell the story:
