A Small Slice Of Lake Powell


Lake Powell has more shoreline than the United States’  entire Pacific Ocean Coastline. Approximately 2,200 miles of it. Pictured here are only a few miles of it but it’s pretty cool.  The lake’s water level changes throughout the year as its primary source, the Colorado River, provides more water via snow melt in the Rockies.
