Hot! Hot!! Hot!!!

Driving from Four Corners Monument the temperature got hotter and hotter. We first visited the Glen Canyon Dam area. We then went to the Wahweap Area for some great views of the turquoise waters of Lake Powell against the red rock. We then visited the Hayden Visitor Center. From here it is a short drive to an overlook. The viewpoint is a short but steep hike down but because it was so hot you couldn't use the handrail. After leaving the overlook we head out to a 1.5 mile roundtrip hike at Horseshoe Bend. We hiked the somewhat steep trail in 100 degree heat. The view was well worth the hike. After our hike we headed for a scenic drive at Lees Ferry where the temp hit 117 degrees (We quit taking pictures of our car temp gauge at 116). After our scenic drive we headed out towards Zion National Park.
