Lake Powell

Want to travel and experience things but Corona got you down? No fear, The Rambling Raccoon is here.

Yeahhh…that was stupid. But stay with me.

As most of you know, Page, AZ is most known for two things: Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell.

As of 3/13/20, Antelope Canyon is closed until further notice.

Yes, it’s a bummer. Unfortunately, this is the world we currently live in, folks. Although COVID Is the reason we can’t have nice things, it doesn’t have to stop you from experiencing some breathtaking outdoor beauty.

So without further ado, I present to you…

The Top 5 Unique Things to Do near Page, AZ

(During a pandemic)

#2. Navajo Bridge

Navajo Bridge AZ

Navajo Bridge is about 40 minutes from the heart of Page, AZ, and is well worth the drive. The drive itself features winding roads and beautiful rock formations. If you’re anything like me, you’ll want to pull over and take in some of the epic views along the way.

Both seeing the epic bridges and learning the history makes this experience awesome for the entire family.

#5 Kayak Lone Rock, Lake Powell

Kayaking Lake Powell

If you do ONE thing near Page, AZ (Lake Powell), Kayaking Lone Rock should be it!

I do own kayaks at home, so I’m not saying you HAVE to kayak with a tour company. You could totally kayak Lake Powell by yourself. But it wouldn’t be the same!

The tour I did with Lake Powell Adventure Co was AMAZING. They obviously know all the cool spots to go so you’re not just paddling around to no-where land.

This tour included 5 hours of kayaking through some killer hidden slot canyons, cliff jumping (including me almost drowning because I’m stupid) and climbing around to some amazing Lake Powell views. What an epic experience!
