mature people take a boat. If you want a more virtual experience, there are several videos on YourTube.

A Big Thanks to Terry Alberman In Kanab, Utah   1 comment

On the first night of our recent road trip we stayed in Page, Arizona, near the shores of Lake Powell. That evening I downloaded photos from my D800 to my laptop. After doing so, for the first time ever, I forgot to turn-off the camera. The next morning the battery was completely dead, which is when I realized that I had forgotten the battery charger. This was bad news since we were going to be spending the morning photographing on Lake Powell, the driving to Zion National Park.

If you have followed my blog, you know I have posted several photos taken on the Lake Powell cruse. Those photos were taken with my D200 and a 12X28 wide-angle lens. My plan was to use both cameras, D200 with a wide-angle lens and the D800 with a 28×300 lens. But, now I only had use of the one camera.

So, I started searching online for a camera shop. Most of us who take photos know that over the years our favorite independent camera shops have gone out o business, primarily due to the “big-box” stores. However, I was able to find a camera shop, Terry’s Camera Trading Co. in Kanab, Utah, which was on our way to Zion National Park. I called Terry and ask him if he had a charger for a Nikon D800. He said he might, but would not know till he could see the numbers on the battery. Since it was a Nikon, he felt pretty sure he would have a charger. 

Arriving in Kanab, we found the camera shop on the main street of Kanab, where Terry has been for 34 years. And yes, he had a charger — for me, Terry was a “lifesaver”.

Now one of my favorite places in the world is Terry’s Camera Trading Co. in Kanab, Utah — you should see his collection of old cameras.

June 9th we took a boat cruse from Lake Powell / Wahweap Marina that included going into one of the best known and photographed slot canyons, Antelope Canyon. The weather was perfect, only missing a few passing clouds that would have made the clear blue sky even more perfect. The boat followed the original path of the Colorado River along the shores of the Navajo Nation. The morning sun made for rich and deep colors on the high canyon walls — poetry in reddish striations. 

Sandstone Tapestry

 Breath taking moments,

A taste is not near enough

Of this slot beauty.

I watch them using

The power of cameras,

To catch each mind’s eye.

Snapshot memories

Of nature’s old tapestries,

Colors of the ages.

It rained yesterday,

But our day on Lake Powell

Was just meant to be.

The first night of our vacation in Page, Arizona. The next morning we were on Lake Powell before driving on to Springdale, Utah outside of Zion National Park.

Nature And Hiking Companions Provide For A Trip Of A Lifetime   8 comments

Pat and Tom Markey on HWY 89 near the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument just south of Page, Arizona

We just returned from a trip to the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, near Lake Powell and Page, Arizona. This remote and unspoiled monument is a geologic treasure in northern Arizona and southern Utah is a must see area containing Paria Plateau, Vermilion Cliffs, Coyote Buttes and Paria Canyon. Our planned trip, lead by Dean Perron, was to hike into The Wave in Coyote Buttes. Since it is difficult to not get plenty of beautiful photos of one of natures masterpieces, I have many I will be sharing in later posting.

Scenic view of the Vermilion Cliff along HWY 89.

The Vermilion Cliffs is one of the newest national monuments (established in 2000). This scenic region is marked only by a few signposts, remaining without any visitor facilities or other improvements — leaving it as a place where people explore by themselves. Administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), it remains a region where most tourists pass by in route to the Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon or Lake Powell.
