Page is a city in northern Arizona. The city is best known for its two main attractions, Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell.

Warning: Although the canyons are beautiful, they can sometimes be dangerous. In 1997 a flash flood swept into Lower Antelope Canyon and killed 12 hikers.

  • Lake Powell, is a destination "hot-spot" with its breathtaking scenery and welcoming environment. The lake caters to every traveler with secluded spots for relaxation and camping and deeper waters for boating, tubing, and jet-skiing. Lake Powell is also a gateway to many world-famous attractions such as Rainbow Bridge in Utah.
Antelope Canyon
Antelope Canyon

Antelope Canyon is a "slot canyon", a narrow chasm in erosions in sandstone. Years of water and sand has rounded the edges to form curves and flowing shapes in the rock. Photographers love the beauty and unique shapes and lighting conditions of the canyons. Flash flooding still occurs in the canyon and may, at times, result in up to several months of closing. Since 1997 the area has been accessible only by permit as it is now a Navajo Tribal Park.

  • Entrance Station Hours, Coppermine Rd. (Navajo Route 20). Summer (March-Oct) 8AM-5PM. Station is closed Nov - Feb, but Lower and Upper Antelope Canyon are both open. Office Hours M-F 8AM-5PM. Entry Fees: Adults $6; under 8: free. No camping is allowed in the park. Access is by guided tour only.

1911 encyclopedia

From LoveToKnow 1911

PAGE. (1) A term used of a boy, lad or young male person in various capacities, positions or offices. The etymology is doubtful; the word is common to the Romanic languages; cf. O. Fr. and Span. page, Port. pagem, Ital. paggio. The Med. Lat. pagius has been commonly referred to Gr. 7rat51ov, diminutive of 7rais, boy, but the connexion is extremely doubtful. Others refer the word to the pueri paedagogiani, young slaves trained to become paedagogi (Gr. 7ratba-yw-yoi), or tutors to young boys attending school. Under the empire, numbers of such youths were attached to the imperial household for the purposes of ceremonial attendance on state occasions, thus occupying much the same position as that of the pages of a royal or noble household in medieval and modern times. In fact the term paedagogiani became equivalent to pueri honorarii, qui in palatio ministerio principis militabant (so Du Cange, Glossarium, s.v.). Littre refers pagius to pagensis, i.e. rustic, belonging to the country districts (pages), and adduces from this the fact that the pagii were not necessarily boys or youths; and quotes from Claude Fauchet (1530-1601) the statement (Lib. I. Orig. milit. cap. i.) that up to the time of Charles VI. (1368-1403) and Charles VII. (1403-1461) "le mot de Page. ... sembloit titre seulement donne a de viles personnes, comme a garcons de pied." Skeat (Etym. Dict.) points out that the form of the word in Portuguese, pagem, indicates the derivation from pagensis. The word "page" was applied in English to a boy or youth who was employed as an assistant to an older servant, acting as it were as an apprentice and learning his duties. In present usage the chief applications are: (a) to a boy or lad, generally wearing livery, and sometimes styled a "buttons," who is employed as a domestic servant; and (b) to a young boy who, dressed in fancy costume, forms part of the bridal procession at weddings. The word is also used (c) as the title of various officials of different rank in royal and other households; thus in the British royal household there are pages of honour, a page of the chambers, pages of the presence, and pages of the back stairs. These, no doubt, descend from the pueri paedagogiani of the Roman imperial household through the young persons of noble or gentle birth, who, during the middle and later ages, served in the household of royal and noble persons, and received a training to fit them for their future position in society. In the times of chivalry the "page" was one who served a knight and was trained to knighthood, and ranked next to a squire.

(See Knighthood and Valet.) (2) In the sense of one side of a leaf of printed or written matter, the word is derived through Fr. from Lat. pagina (pangere, to fasten).

Simple English

A page can be different things:

  • When we talk about computers, a page is also a common abbreviation in net jargon for "webpage". Here the page is not paper, it is a piece of information which we can see on a computer monitor at one time. We can print it to make a real page. But the information may not fit all on one page, and we can not change it when it is printed - we can change a web page. So a webpage is not always the same even as a printed copy of that page. This is a conceptual metaphor. It can be confusing. Someone who uses it is also likely to use other jargon.
  • A page is also a boy or a young man who helps carry things and does small jobs for someone. Another word for this is a pageboy.
  • To page someone is to contact that person on their pager: this is a small electronic machine which makes a sound or gives someone a message.
