Colorado River And Glen Canyon Dam(n)


Page, Arizona

November 16, 2020


Thought this was a neat panoramic photo. I actually took this one! On the right is the 716 foot tall Glen Canyon dam. The river is the Colorado. Above the dam the water is blue; downstream of the dam, it is green due to the algae in the water. The river flows from here through the Grand Canyon and then is damed again near Las Vegas at the Hoover Dam which forms Lake Mead. Glen Canyon forms Lake Powell.


Horseshoe Bend is several miles downstream from here.


More photos later.

Chuck. Thanks. From the “scenic view” area although I scrabbled a hundred yards on the rocks to get this view.

Great photo. I've visited Glen Canyon at least 6 times and I've never seen this view of the dam.
