Lake Powell 2007

We spent the week of 7/13-7/20 at Lake Powell. We own a share of a houseboat at Bullfrog. It's an older boat, but we have a great time every year. This year, I had a new Nikon D200 SLR camera to play with. It's an excellent camera and I enjoyed playing with it and experimenting with the settings. Especially the shutter priority options when shooting out the back of the ski boat. Here is a sampling of some photos from the trip:

(I need a little filler here so that you can see the first photo)

This is Richard again but he is not crashing. He lays out like this and balances with his hand and foot and then goes right back up (most of the time anyway).

We visited "The Crack" just south of Knowles Canyon. It was very cool:

Don't worry, he was fine:

Some rappeling shots. We brought our rappeling gear and had a great time rappeling off of cliffs into the water. We will definitely do this again next year.

Me doing some "long rope skiing". We tied three ropes together (180 ft total length) to water ski in the mornings. It was a blast. You could glide forever.
