So despite numerous attempts, we did not manage to go to the actual Wave, but in addition to the Fire Wave in Nevada, the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area has the next best thing. Coming from page, just after the big bend following the dam, there is a dirt road that goes off to the left. It then divides into two dirt roads. take the upper one. It will lead you to some awesome rock formations. if you leae your car on one of the turnouts, you can spend hours climbing around. The further deeper and higher in you go the more incredible the stone formations, some of which look like litle imitations of 'the wave'. In some directions th view is the same as it has been for the past couple hundred years. And the best thing? it is free and you could be entirely by yourself in this area.

If you get the chance to learn about and tour the Glen Canyon Dam then I recommend it. We really enjoyed our time there and learning about how the area states agreed to control use of the Colorado River with the start of the Hoover Dam (if I remember all my facts correctly). Give yourself a 1-3 hours to stop by and enjoy this national recreation area.

We had a one hour trip which was really scenic and allowed us to get into some of the more inaccessible spots. Quite expensive though for just an hour.

We stayed two nights at the Wahweap Marina at Glen Canyon Dam. The Marina, in addition to boating, offers a campground, gift shop, restaurant and very nice hotel rooms plus two nice swimming pools with hot tubs. Took the boat tour on lake Powell to Rainbow bridge the largest natural bridge in the world some 370 feet of span. The restaurant and bar were excellent. Close to the Glen Canyon dam and Antelope Canyon which is a must see experience just inside the Navaho Nation.

The canyon is beautiful. We went on the dam tour for $5/person. It was ok. The area is great if you have a boat. We didn't have a boat so what we could do was limited.
