Rode out to Page a few days ago. Out via Jacob Lake, back via Kanab. Highlight was the late afternoon views of Lake Powell. Here are the pics.

Started out by driving past Quail Reservoir. Looks good.




Also Sand Hollow Reservoir.




Favorite street in Hurricane. Green trees match the bike quite nicely.




Very windy. Dust devils as I approach Fredonia.




All your basic necessities available in Fredonia.




Still very windy. At the viewpoint on 89A above House Rock. Distant view to the Vermilion Cliffs.




Excellent moto road and very scenic. The bridge across Soap Creek.




Short stop near the Cliff Dwellers Lodge.




The famous Navajo Bridge.




Bridge with Vermilion Cliffs in background.




View from the bridge. Marble Canyon and the Colorado River.




The standard route to Page . . . Route 89 . . . is still closed.




Detour a bit further south. Just means more riding time.




Turn back north at Gap. Well marked detour.




North on Navajo #20.




Previously dirt . . . this is 100% brand new beautiful asphalt.




The map. The yellow highlighted #20 is all new pavement . . . ready for your riding pleasure. Gap (gas station) is at the southern end of #20.




Local cows aren't used to much traffic. They're not quite sure what to make of me.




The source of the water. Very interesting to travel along a brand new paved road. Easy access to some off-the-beaten path type places.




As you descend towards Page there are big views of the Navajo Generating Station.




More views with Navajo Mountain in the background.




Twisty roads for the Versys near Antelope Point Marina.




View of Lake Powell from near Glen Canyon Dam.




Versys up high at the Wahweap viewpoint.




Wahweap Marina and Lake Powell.




The big view.




Very popular at sunset. I wasn't alone . . . but I was the only moto.




Thanks for riding along!
