Lake Powell: Cathedral in the Desert


In the morning, the plan was Tom G and Aaron would motor up to Dangling Rope Marina on the broken prop, and get it fixed. The rest of us would hang out. In the afternoon, we would motor up to the Cathedral in the Desert (CID) and shoot pictures, then figure out what else to do.

Donuts for breakfast. Again?

Lovely weather we’re having…

“We” push the boat out into the channel so they can lower the wounded prop and motor up on it at trolling speed. So they do.

Hang out at camp, have coffee, dry out the sleeping bags, etc.

Todd and I decided to climb up the butte behind camp. We got halfway up, to a bench level, and enjoyed the view of the lake.

Nice view.

The climb down was stimulating in a few spots…

Beer for lunch. Again?

First Mate “Filthy” Gendron returns with the fixed watercraft.

The entrance to CID hides its beauties.

We have the Cathedral to ourselves for an hour or more. We duel for shooting positions, and much film is shot.
