Glen Canyon/Lake Powell Float Expeditions Back
Dec 20, 2017
In February 2012 and April 2014, Artwestimage photographers had the privilege to explore Lake Powell, the second largest man-made lake in the United States.
Once a few miles from the Wahweap marina in 2012, Artwestimage staffers found themselves in another world, with a skyline unmarred by signs of civilization. In the grips of the usual mild winter, only a handful of other boats were seen on the lake over the duration of their four-day houseboat excursion. Traveling a total of 125 miles, the group explored Padre Bay, the upper reaches of Rock Creek Canyon, Oak Creek Bay and Secret Canyon, the Rainbow Bridge in Forbidding Canyon and lower West Canyon.
In 2014, Artwestimage photographers returned to Lake Powell, this time from the Bullfrog Marina. After nearly a week of Colorado River boat travel, the team explored the middle reaches of Glen Canyon from Forbidden Canyon in the north to the Hole in the Rock south of the mouth of the Escalante River.
