Glen Canyon Returns

A while ago, I posted this article on a film being
shown about David Brower of Sierra Club fame. One of Browers’ obsessions was Glen Canyon Dam, which was finished
in 1963 and subsequently held up all of Lake Powell. While Powell has become a recreational gem since then,
with kick ass water skiing and fishing, many greens rue the building of the dam as an act of man that ruined one of the
most beautiful sites in America, Glen Canyon. Well, in something of a allmighty bitch-slap to that act of man, an
enduring drought has now dropped the level of
the lake almost 200 feet, thus revealing for the first time in decades many of the glowing canyan walls that once
turned on guys like Brower.
