The next morning, we spent the entire day exploring Petrified Forest, though we couldn't stay until sunset. Unfortunately, with the the cut backs to National Parks, Petrified is understaffed and the park hours have shifted significantly. I know Paul did enjoy bringing others into his Park experience, though. From there, we made our way north to Page, which is home to Horseshoe Bend, slot canyons, and Lake Powell.
We took the group on a boat cruise across Lake Powell all the way to Rainbow Bridge, a sacred natural bridge to the surrounding native tribes. It is one of the smallest units under the care of the National Parks Service. Lake Powell itself is an incredible, both man-made and natural feature, whose coastline in total is longer than the entire United States. We documented a part of the cruise using our new 360 degree camera! Our new 360 videos are interactive, meaning you can actually drag the video around 360 degrees using your mouse, or by moving your mobile device from side to side. Try it out!
