Lake Powell borders Arizona and Utah. We arrived at Wahweap Marina (there are 5 marinas with a 6th one planned) through Page, Arizona and rented a motorboat for 8 hours to tour around. We never saw the same thing twice. The place is amazing! Lake Powell began it’s evolution into being in 1962 when the Glen Canyon Dam was completed, and it took over 14 years to fill. It spans 186 miles and offers over 1,986 miles of shoreline. Lake Powell is actually capable of storing up to 27 million acre-feet of water (useless conversion: 1 acre-foot = 325,851 gallons).

Aside from just the lake, the entire park, the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, has extensive backcountry to explore, where the lake only makes up about 13% of that total area.
