Alstrom Point, Lake Powell – Part 3

Crossing Wahweap Wash
Crossing Wahweap Wash
You never know what the flow of the Wahweap Wash will be like until you get there but most times it will look like this.

If the water is moving rapidly or the soft prehistoric muck is wet this area can be impassible. I strongly encourage that if you attempt this adventure please do not take any unnecessary chances with getting stuck or injured. The local authorities do maintain this County Road a couple times a year but if the wash has been flowing it will cut into the route deeply.

If the pass is clear you will eventually be rewarded with a fantastic elevated view of Lake Powell.

I will leave the rest of the navigation up to you. The Google Map may not include all of the jeep trails. I have a U.S. Geological Survey topographic map (USGS Topo) that I purchased at Glen Canyon Dam Visitor’s Center that I used to learn the area.
