Exploring Glen Canyon
Beginning in the year 2000, a severe drought reduced the annual snowfall in the Rocky Mountains of the American West. As a result, by April 2005, the water volume in Lake Powell had been reduced by 68% and its surface elevation had dropped 145 feet. The legendary canyons of Glen Canyon, which were flooded after the construction of Glen Canyon Dam in 1963, began to re-emerge. The images in this gallery showcase these â€ślostâ€ť canyons of Glen.
