Lake Powell Rock Formations

Since general public visitation numbers at the lake are heavily skewed to the south end, few have ventured clear up to Tapestry. But for those who have, at 6:00 on a warm summer sunrise, there are few sights more impressive. Reflection can really only be appreciated from above, not so much at lake level. In the “best bang for the buck” category, the Escalante has to be a winner, with CID, 3 Roof, LaGorce, Stevens, and the narrows of Willow, 50 mile, and Bishops.

…totally agree on the Escalante attractions, and to those I’d add Gregory Bridge these days… although there’s no boat access to Three Roof, LaGorce (or Stevens for that matter) at current levels, and the narrows in Fiftymile and Bishop are longer hikes to reach…

Also agree that Tapestry Wall in the morning is hard to beat. Almost even better is if you hike to the top and take in the unbelievable views in all directions from up there... that’s a wow-and-a-half for sure…
