At Page, AZ is the Glen Canyon Dam which is a concrete arch dam on the Colorado River The dam was built to provide hydroelectricity and flow regulation from the upper Colorado River Basin to the lower. Its reservoir is called Lake Powell, and is the second largest artificial lake in the country, extending upriver well into Utah. The dam is named for Glen Canyon, a colorful series of gorges, most of which now lies under the reservoir.
The trip continued with turns and bends and ever-changing geology. We had the
opportunity to view the famous “Horseshoe Bend” from the water. Many had seen
it from the top of the canyon, but we were part of the fortunate group who
actually navigated around it.
