Aquarius Plateau and questa
Look what I did during my vacation!
Able to traverse vast distances, Quetza traveled all over the American southwest during her summer vacation. Passing by Powell Point of the Aquarius Plateau she had a beautiful view of Bryce Canyon National Park and also Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. She found the thermal updrafts over the hot dry landscape easy to ride.

Near Grand Canyon National Park, she stopped over at a small historic fort, Pipe Spring National Monument, on the Arizona strip. Later she circled over Glen Canyon National Recreation Area where she found plenty of fish to eat.
