[Sunset over the Waterpocket Fold]

Lake Powell Adventure 2006

with the lovely Erin Tatge and the Los Alamos Mountaineers

by Reid Priedhorsky

Over Thanksgiving of 2006, Erin Tatge and I went houseboating on Lake Powell. The trip was led by my dad, Bill Priedhorsky; also along were my stepmom, Melissa Bartlett, my little brother, Peter Priedhorsky, and a pile of Los Alamos Mountaineers.

These trip report pages were written and organized by me. You can click on captioned photos for a larger version, but be aware that large is frequently very large indeed. Uncredited photos were taken by me. This trip report is copyright 2007 by Reid Priedhorsky, and all images are copyright 2006 by their respective owners. All rights are reserved.

I would love to hear from you! Please send email to reid@reidster.net.
