Kathy was with her buddy John and we collectively hired a guide to do the hike the following day. I was excited but equally excited to setup my camping spot @ Wawheap and get out adventuring around Lake Powell.
After making arrangements for our guide the following day, I hightailed it to Lake Powell and pulled into the small town of Big Water with the first gas station available as I was running on fumes. Hauling a cargo box, kayak on top and a mountain bike reduced my MPG such that 350-400 miles on a tank is the norm – with all my gear was dry after 260 miles. The good news was that gas was affordable here at around $3.05 gallon.
After setting up my base camp I checked out the Resort and gandered at Lake Powell and Lone Rock. It is a massive piece of rock. A local parks employee commented how due the overwhelming snowpack in Utah and Colorado, Lake Powell will be raising their water levels up 80′. YES, EIGHTY FEET! Good news for us in Lake Mead!
