Day of kayak play @ Antelope Canyon on Lake Powell AZ
We had to veer left towards a series of buoy's and paddle between the opening to get to the main waters. From there it was simple - a left, and a left- then a left, another left, and one more left. EASY! I can remember those instructions! There are a number of kayakers, swimmers, paddle boarders, and boaters out on the water today. There is an excessive heat watch (113 for a high!) in effect for the area, so I thought that the water would feel amazingly refreshing! While it was nice, it was also a hot 78 degrees - so not a lot of cooling effects!
But the water was just as I remember it - crystal clear with a bright green/teal/blue glow. The rocks that surround the waters were variations of red and white. The beaches along the sides were sometimes rock, sometimes sand - but always had the same red tint. We paddle and paddle and paddle and are cruising right along when we turned off the main waters into the channel. There, it was much quieter - a few kayaks, some swimmers, but no boats and no wake.
