What are the odds of this? Found our camp at Lake Powell on Google Earth. That is our houseboat, our boats and jet skis, our EZ ups. Just can't see the blowup doll hanging from the flag pole.

Here is one from ground level. You can definitely see the EZ ups, HB, and even our feeble attempt at a water slide in the google earth shot.

Vegas comrade...that is really wild. Talk about lucky...the one day that they were taking satelite photos and you were there. I have seen my truck in front of my house, but yours takes the cake. How often do you make it up to Powell? Is it still nice even though te water is down?

Great shot! Google Earth doesn't have near that good of resolution in our cove at Norris. I believe the resolution depends on where they are snapping pictures, not all areas are equal.

You can see our boat at our dock and someone elses tied up to the dock. Pretty interesting I have yet to find a terrorist training camp though.

Hey Vegas X-star! We go to Powell the third week of every August. Yes, it is amazing even with the low water.

No blow up doll there! That is one of the live dolls that tend to wander into camp.

Well, shoo-t boy, that's when we were there last year, and when we're planning on being there this year.

Where do you camp? We took the coward's way out the last two years, and put in next to Gunsight:

Maybe we'll see you out there this year.

Hi Frank: We are normally right in the bay below Gunsight. Nice beaches and sheltered coves. See you in August!
