The Lost World of
On January 21, 1963 the gates of the new Glen Canyon Dam swung closed and the silty waters of the wild Colorado River began pooling behind a svelte 710’ plug of concrete. Day by day Glen Canyon, the ‘place no one knew,’ as termed by the photographer Eliot Porter, slipped away into the memories of those who had run the river through it, camped on its banks, and marveled at its surpassingly enchanting beauty and quietude. Seventeen years later Lake Powell finally filled to the brim, and through the years people from everywhere used houseboats and Jet Skis, powerboats and kayaks to explore its 96 named and flooded canyons. I was one of those explorers in love with this high-desert gem, and shared its wonders with the world in several magazine features. But I’ve always wondered what lay below the blue water, and if I’d ever see it reborn. That time may have come at last.
