Lake Powell, Day 6. Smith Fork Canyon to Bullfrog Bay

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

After breakfast we slow cruised from the far end of Smith Fork Canyon, where we had slept soundly after our hike, back down to Bullfrog Bay. We fished a bit on the way and saw the Moki Steps outside Forgotten Canyon. Since we have seen Defiance House twice before, we did not feel we needed to go back a third time - our goal this year is not to take in all the sights, but to anchor, raft, swim, paddle kayaks, hike up interesting canyons, fish, and generally just enjoy the good company of our friends Russ and Toni. In short, we are here for recreation this year, not sightseeing!

Back at Bullfrog Bay, we had lunch and then just kicked back and read until drinks and dinner. I am still working on Undaunted Courage by Stephen Ambrose, the story of Lewis and Clark's amazing trip in 1804 - 1806. Toni took Baxter to shore in the dinghy.

After dinner we watched a movie on Traveler - the movie was Men Who Stare at Goats. It had some funny moments I guess.

What today's post is all about though is that it is amazing how little you can accomplish when you really set your mind to it!
