On Our Way To Rainbow Bridge

Kismet cruising to Rainbow Bridge

This is what it looked like (above) from inside the boat as we negotiated the narrow canyons on our way to Rainbow Bridge National Monument. Each canyon, off the main river route, is marked with these buoy type signs (below-right) that way boaters unfamiliar with Lake Powell, like us, will have a better chance of NOT getting lost.

The last tour boat of the day passed us as we traveled up the canyon. We thought this was probably a good thing as the dock and trail won’t be as busy when we get there.

Only a few boats were tied up to the long dock just before the trail leading up to the monument. We decided to take our time before we left the boat to hike the trail up the hill. I fixed lunch and we ate on the back of the boat. Jim even had a few minutes to clean the hull.

  1. Did you have any turbo/rpm problems at lake powell ? I am desertug on tugnuts and have a R31S took delivery in August in LA every thing was great. Got back to New Mexico 6K feet above sea level and the D4 will not spool up max rpm 1920. Reproped to a 19×19 and all was good last fall. Now engine will finally spool up in cool morning but not in afternoon. I probably go to tug nuts with this. Thanks

    1. Hi Steph, we just recently took possession of our R29 and getting familiar with our new tug with the D4 engine. Hope you were able to get your questions answered on Tugnuts. A very helpful group.

    1. We didn’t take the boat tour, we were on our own boat. We were at Rainbow Bridge in the late morning. It really wasn’t the best time to take photos of the bridge itself as I remember the sun was behind the bridge.
