A recommended resource for your boating explorations on the lake is the Stan Jones Boating and Exploring Map to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. If the map is not available in one of your local book stores it may be ordered from Stan Jones, PO Box 955, Page, AZ 86040. The map not only provides navigational aid, but also history, canyon descriptions and fishing tips. If you're into hiking once you've moored your houseboat, the following reference is very useful: Boaters Guide to Lake Powell: Featuring Hiking, Camping, Geology, History and Archeaeology by Michael Kelsey.
