Glen Canyon Moonrise/Sunset


Glen Canyon is that canyon that pretty much disappeared once construction started on the Glen Canyon Dam in 1956. It was finished in 1966. But the Colorado River was backed up into the canyon which later formed Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. There still is a canyon but not nearly as deep as it was.  The two images here were shot within 5 minutes of each other. More images from the area to follow.

  3. Great shots! I remember going on a tour of that damn during construction. There was such a controversy at that time about what was going to be flooded.
    My wife and I went on a day long boat excursion. what a wonderful place.
