Description: Striated red-orange cliffs and the opportunity to enjoy clear desert skies above sparkling blue water draw many visitors to this recreation area, which includes Lake Powell, a stretch of the Colorado River and miles of rocky desert country. Encompassing hundreds of miles from Lees Ferry in Arizona to the Orange Cliffs of southern Utah, the area offers scenic vistas, geologic wonders, and a panorama of human history.Boating, fishing, swimming, backcountry hiking and four-wheel driving opportunities abound.

Wildlife to Watch: Wildlife may include bighorn sheep, small mammals such as desert cottontail ,black-tail jackrabbit, cliff chipmunk, rock squirrel, coyote, gray fox, badger and ringtail, and birds of prey, including possible California condors. Waterfowl and gulls may also be observed, particularly at Lees Ferry during migration and winter. During sprinjg and fall migration, birdes may find good numbers of songbirds among the shade trees and orchard at the Lonely Dell Ranch Historic Site near the mouth of the Paria River and Lees Ferry. Both Cooper's hawk and Say's phoebe nest here, as do Lucy's warbler, yellow-breasted chat and Bewick's wren among the nearby tamarisk thickets.
