Lake Powell.

If you’ve never been to Lake Powell, just imagine a smaller scale Grand Canyon. Then imagine that someone left the hose running. It’s also safe to assume that it’s one of the richest Lakes in the world, seeing as how it now owns multiple pairs of my sunglasses and hair accessories (you will be greatly missed, Ray-bans).

And, for those of you having trouble imagining, you can enjoy the scenery via this Britney Spears music video (watch here).

It’s one of the greatest places in the world, and perhaps the greatest thing about it is that every year, due to the varying water levels, you’ll find yourself on a different lake- full of different caves, cliffs, and coves. The second greatest thing is Big John's Texas Barbeque- their pulled pork sandwhich has forever changed my life.

I think Europe caught wind of its amazing-ness and decided to go on vacation the same time we did- there were countless binocular clad foreigners touring Paige, Arizona in their rented RV’s- it was almost as diverse as Disneyland at peak season- a sight I never expected I’d see. However, it’s been years since I’ve been to Lake Powell, and while the ethnicities in the area now differ, nature’s color pallet has remained the same- those red rocks and that emerald green water just about made my eyes burst from beauty! Not to mention the incredible Slot Canyons we shimmied through- breathtaking, I tell you. All of it. It just may be the happiest place on Earth- Disneyland, you’ve been outdone yet again.


  1. SO jealous! Lake Powell is my favorite place on earth!!

    1. It really is the BEST place on Earth! But New York City is a very close second..


You're the best!
