I went swimming this morning, by myself and then to the Jacuzzi. After days traveling, I’m enjoying the nice hotel, where we also had breakfast included.
We had the Lower Canyon tour booked at 11:15 with Dixie’s. They asked us to be in there office 30min before the tour. We followed their instructions but they let us go in the 10:45 tour so we didn’t have to wait.
The tour is really nice, the guide even gave us photo tips. The only complain is that it goes really fast so you don’t have much time to enjoy it because you have the next group breathing at the back of your neck. And it was low season, I can’t imagine how is it in summer. Also, you can’t go inside the Canyon by your self, so tours are mandatory.
The tour last one hour (56.5$ per adult). Annual pass doesn’t work here because this is Navajo territory. We then drove to Horseshoe bend, where you don’t have to pay entrance fee but 10$ parking that you can pay with card.
The walk from the parking is less than 1km (one way, we did almost 2km in total) but is steep and even in winter it was a little hot, so better to take water, hat and sunscreen with you.
The place is beautiful, maybe a little overrated, but it is worth it to me. My recommendation is to go late morning or mid day, otherwise the bend and river are in shadow.
We had burgers for lunch in Slackers and dinner at La Fiesta Mexicana in Page, and between those we just relaxed in our hotel since we are almost finishing our trip and we begin to notice the tiredness.
