Yes, booked. EVERYTHING was booked. I didn't try AirbnB - didn't occur to me until just now.

Just bad planning on my part, but who would think it would be so jammed mid-week in the fall without any major events going on. Just too many freaking PEOPLE!

Go home! Maybe a recession would be a good thing...

Or not.
There were big crowds at Horseshoe Bend, but not quite big enough to ruin the experience.

You’ve gotten some really good responses. We drove past this area on 9/22 on our way home from a two week trip throughout New Mexico and Colorado. We timed it after school was back in session, the heat had let up slightly, but before we may get locked out of Trail Ridge Road due to snow at Rocky Mountain National Park which can start in late Sept. There’s a lot of configuring when people plan trips, and we were coming from what I consider ‘local’, not flying, not international, so have more flexibility than most. We made hotel reservations about two months ahead and had less availability in a couple of stops but overall were fine. It only took once about 25yrs ago to not get a room ahead where we though we’d have no problem to learn. It cost us another 9hrs after a 10hr drive with three kids in footie pjs. The kids remember it as ‘fun’, we do not. ;-)

I was in Page a year ago. It's not on topic but did anyone else experience rudeness in the Navajo Indians??? We definitely did not feel welcome especially at the slot canyons. One night we stopped at the Walmart and there were sister wives there in prairie dresses and Victorian hair styles It was fine staying there a few days but I felt like it was a strange place.

The Navajo's are only rude to people from California, especially Orange County.

I kid. But come to think of it, the Walmart at Page may be the closest one to Hilldale/Colorado City. On second thought, I just checked Goog and it is not, so I don't know about the sister wives.

I guess I just don't know squat . . . .

Welcome back jamies!!!

I learned my lesson in Oregon about telling people I live in CA..... trust me I keep it on the down low. Maybe the Indians are just over the tourists but I'm sure it's the life blood of Page. It was a very cool place and beautiful. I just felt a under current there and am wondering if anybody else did too.

Hi Teddy - thanks. Heading up to your neck of the terrible AZ woods soon.

I've always found the Navajo to be fine. They may not jump in your lap for attention, but all those I've known I'd rather have as friends than most white eyes. I think often anyone in a hot tourist zone is tired of the same stupid questions and dealing with fools all day.

I don't really care for Page, Lake Powell is too stark for me and the town does kind of have a weird feel. Maybe because there is no "center." We've stayed in Kayenta (near Monument Valley) several times, once for a shooting competition, and I've been through the res quite a bit.

We had Canyon de Chelly to ourselves one snowy February day about 6 years ago. It was just a dusting, maybe an inch, but we only saw one other car the whole time. I think all Nat'l Parks / Monuments should be like that, reserved just for me!

Hotels too. LOL

Page is a major hub for activities around Page like Antelope Canyon, Lake Powell and Horshoe Bend but also Southern Utah pakrs, The Wave, the GCNP, colorado river excursions and 4 corners, Monument Valley, etc.

Other than Moab and a few smaller places in Utah, Page is the only major population area with decent places to stay

I love and hate that Northern AZ is becoming so popular
