Three more amazing Arizona road trip spots

Among the red rocks lies a small water oasis known as Lake Powell. The lake encircles beautiful rock formations, sandstone cliffs and even beaches. Lake Powell differs from Utah’s other wonders in that it is man-made, but this fact doesn’t detract from its beauty. The best way to see the lake is on the water itself. You can hire a boat or take a guided boat trip from the Lake Powell Marina. Once you’re back on dry land, why not head to Horseshoe Bend (pictured) and watch the sunset on the horizon behind this epic (and free) road trip attraction.
