Joel: The second part of our trip was Page, AZ. Page is very near the Utah border. In fact, we drove very briefly to Utah when we were first exploring the area. We are staying in a pretty sweet VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner). The house is huge and has a sun room that overlooks Lake Powell and the dam. The dam provides local businesses here with funny, but overused, business names. For example, "The dam deli", "The dam plaza", etc. The house is also right up against a golf course with a nice trail for walking/running, which I've done almost everyday since being here. Here is the view from the sun room.
Wendy: Since Horseshoe Bend has no railings and it's a 1000 foot drop straight down, the entire edge is one, big "nope spot." Kendra, with complete disregard to her mother's and my anxiety levels, sat on the edge for some pictures. This is where we got our second, full-group shot. I wish I had taken a photo of the trail to get there. It was short, but I'm not kidding when I say it was "uphill both ways.". Big climb up from the parking lot, then down to the rim, then back up from the rim, and down to the parking lot.
