What time is it necessary to inspect: It is enough difficult to answer this question. Andriusix personally were only in one part of the park – Wahweap. If you add all the time we spent on acquaintance with her, it will turn out about noon, maybe a little more. But it is worth considering that it was a very runaway inspection: we only rolled on Scenic Drive (details below), looked from the side of the dam, covered in the center of the center and on a couple of overview sites and all. We did not take any tours, did not take a boat for rent to swim on the lake, did not go to the trail. Considering all this, it will take at least one or two days for a fullest visit. It’s only one district! Generally, Powell Lake – This is a place where people come and live weekly, enjoying the beauty and atmosphere of rest. Usually choose some one district and do not twitch))
