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.

California’s Moro Bay

Along California’s central coast, Moro Bay is a home for one nice marina and one large ubiquitous rock.

I also forgot the ubiquitous smoke stacks of the local power plant.

 

 


Lake Powell Moonrise

Lake Powell is on the border of Utah and Arizona. Formed by the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam, it has more shoreline than our Pacific Coastline. You might recognize in some of the photos, how the waterline has been dropping because of the drought in the area. I was there to capture the full moon rising. Companion time lapse can be seen at Moon Over Lake Powell Time Lapse Video.
