On our Sunday cruise up and down the Lake, we stopped at another place I don't recall ever seeing out of my 15+ years at Lake Powell. We went to the Hole in the Rock. When I heard Hole in the Rock, I thought a big rock with a hole in it, but I was wrong.
As you can see at the top, that is the whole, and where the pioneers came through. They lowered their wagons down. While sitting in our boat the water was 200+ feet deep. So they had a long way down to lower their wagons. I can't remember what my Dad said, but they were living someplace in Utah and decided to go start over in a new place in Utah. *When I get the real city names I'll uplift you with that information.
All I can say is, WOW! I knew the pioneers were amazing, but after seeing this in real life it made it even more real.
