Day 4: A DAY ON THE LAKE
Contrasting most of the vagabonding activity we had been engaged in pretty much for most of this trip since our stay in Moab, we finally got to have a pretty laid back day on this day. So we slept in, and just made sure that we were going to the marina in time for our booked tour for Rainbow Bridge.
We’d ultimately get into the marina at around 9am. And then, we embarked on a rather leisurely boat cruise of Lake Powell with the main destination being Rainbow Bridge.
It actually took quite a bit of time for the boat to even make it to the bridge, but once we boated into the canyon containing the bridge, we noticed some interesting formations (which the boat staff pointed out) as well as an interesting jug handle arch.
Eventually, the boat docked at some pier-like dock where we all disembarked and then went on a short trail that took us right to the impressively shapely and large Rainbow Bridge. Of all the natural arches we had seen on this trip, this one definitely had the grandeur. It might not be as iconic as Delicate Arch, but it was certainly one of the more memorable ones on this trip.
When we had our fill of this gorgeous span, we then got back on the boat, took the long ride back to the marina, and by around 2pm or so, we were then left on our own to just enjoy the scenery at Lake Powell and even check out the dam itself.
