One May 4th, it was Jon and Rhoanna's 10th Wedding Anniversary.  We had the most wonderful long weekend on a houseboat on Lake Powell.  The scenery is almost indescribable with towering rock formations rising majestically straight up out of the water.  We docked up against deserted beaches, swam in the crystal clear water, relaxed on the sun deck, hiked the canyons and watched billions of stars at night.

Lake Powell was formed with the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam in 1963, on the Colorado River in Page, Arizona. It is the second largest man-made lake in the United States and is 187 miles long with 96 major side canyons and a coast line of approximately 1960 miles--more than the west coast of the U.S. from Seattle to San Diego.
