    fresh as diasies

    It cost $15 for a car load of people to enter Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. This is one of the parks included on the America The Beautiful Pass that we were using to visit the National Parks of the west during the summer of 2008. This is one of the best values in the world of travel. This is probably a park we would not have visited otherwise and it came in very handy on a number of occasions. We camped, did laundry and got showers twice on our six month trip around western US in 2008.

    The first visit was after our visit to Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in mid-May and the second time was a few weeks later after coming through the shower-free parks of Canyon d Chelly and Monument Valley. Both times the oasis felt just like that. Water, baby, water. Beautiful water. The picnic areas are also very nice, with not only restrooms (actually nicer than the campground's) but also sinks right next to the amply covered shady picnic tables, making it convenient for clean-up. This came in very handy on our way from Monument Vally to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, saving us the need to get a room. We arrived fresh as daises. ;)

    We Dutchies are very famous for the fact that we like things to get for free! LOL. The Glen Canyon Official Map and Guide is free but also very usefull. We recieved this one at the information centre and were glad to have one.

    We took 2 of them and used one for our Diary of a madman and the other one was for the very useful information and maps. Here is a summary of the information found in the Glen Canyon Map and Guide:

    * Information of facilities, services and programs;
    * Warning about hiking;
    * Detailed map of the region;
    * Climate information;
    * Park Programs;
    * Wildlife information;
    * Places to visit;
    * Et cetera.

    Take your Glen Canyon Official Map and Guide, because it's very usefull.
