Glen Canyon Dam was built on the Colorado River for the purpose of water storage and to generate power. It also achieved the distinction of creating the second largest reservoir in North America – Lake Powell, 186 square miles of wild and breathtaking beauty. It has 1,960 miles of shoreline winding along sandy beaches, towering red and buff carved walls, and cliffs. Because most of the shoreline is accessible only by water, a boat enhances the visit. At Lake Powell there are hundreds of side canyons and coves to explore where evidence of ancient Native Americans can be seen.
