Page is a small town in northern Arizona located on the southern shores of Lake Powell.
The location is ideal for exploring many of the American Southwest’s renowned national parks and monuments, and discovering the unique culture of the Navajo Nation.
The city is perched atop Manson Mesa at an elevation of 4,300 feet above sea level and 600 feet above Lake Powell.
Page, unlike other towns in the area, was created in 1957 to provide housing for dam workers and their families. This was a major undertaking as there were no roads into what became the construction camp of Page.
With Lake Powell and the Colorado River on their doorstep, Page puts you right at the heart of unparalleled outdoor beauty. You will find the most dramatic photo op in Horseshoe Bend, the mile high Tower Butte, the slot canyons, the ten mile Rim Trail and spectacular views from the Glen Canyon Dam.
The Antelope Slot Canyon tours, are a must do and if time permits do both Upper and Lower Slot Canyons. The Upper Canyon tour was very busy when we were there, and unfortunately I think they try to get too many people through in a day, it becomes a rushed walk with lots of people going both ways.
They do allow time for good viewing and the views in the canyon are spectacular so still well worth doing. The Lower Slot Canyon is the best. More of a mission to get into and ladders to go down but once in there is only one way traffic and they run the tours in small groups so you have your own spot to stop and view the interesting rock formations.
On both tours the guides are very informative and helpful with your photography. Make sure you book ahead for the tours.
