Forty of us spent the last week of March at Bullfrog, Lake Powell, Utah. We were part of an Elderhostel gathering to learn more about the Geology, History and Ecology of the area. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Hosteling has become a popular activity for those over 55. More on the Elderhostel program can be found at http://www.elderhostel.org. Their are thousands of trips scheduled throughout the world for every interest.
For those not familiar with this region of Utah, it's considered desert but with a very scenic landscape. Lake Powell is man-made and very controversial. Some wish to remove Glenn Canyon Dam which backs it. The lake is a popular boating area in the warm season with hundreds of narrow canyons and magnificent rock walls that drop straight down to the water. Houseboating is a very popular family activity.
Follows a collection of photos submitted by members of our trip. This is being done to share and inform others that weren't lucky enough to be with us. We would like to thank Bill Reid, our leader; Tony Delprete, geologist; Capt. Dawn, our very capable skipper and Bill Paxman, our driver.

I must say, I miss the good times we had and hope our paths cross again soon. There's certainly a lot more to see in this great land.
