10 DAYS WITH NO BATH
NO SHOWER
NO CHANGE OF UNDERWARE

NO PROBLEM! The air is 90 degrees, the water is near 80 and you just happen to fall into the lake once a day with a bar of Ivory soap.

When you get out of the water you just put on a dry swim suit.

This was our 12th year at Lake Powell where we own a 1/12 share of the houseboat, "REFLECTIONS".

Lake Powell is on the Utah-Arizona border just upstream from the Grand Canyon. It is on the Colorado River just up stream from the Grand Canyon. The lake is impounded by the Glen Canyon Dam where it is 560 feet deep. The Lake Powell is over 190 miles long with a shoreline of 1,960 miles and has 96 major side canyons.

Be sure to see Slot Canyons on the left.
