Glenn Canyon Dam

Coming home from Arizona, I crossed over the bridge at Glen Canyon Dam. I took photos on the Utah side.


 Visitor's Center at Glen Canyon Dam - car reflections

 Looking east from the dam

 Looking south to the Arizona side (caught an extra reflection from the glass in the visitor's center)


 Looking straight down at the water below the dam.


Anyone up for a boat ride in a pontoon?

Nice shots of an interesting place. I haven't yet seen this dam.

Absolutely stunning images.
I began to feel dizzy as I looked for pictures.
But if I speak the truth, I would like to see this in the wild.

I wrote a book about my family's journal, but could trace only to 100 years, to my great grand father.

This is a great place. Once took a float trip down the Colorado River to Glen Canyon. You should see Elliot Porter's photos of Glen Canyon before the dam. They are amazing.

I like the way that third shot is like a canvas of stone. Love that soft orange color.

Been to the north rim on the East side of Flagstaff, nothing beats the beauty of the scenery along the canyon.
