Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam

I passed through Page, AZ, already twice during my travels, but so far I did not find time to stop there for longer than to take a few pictures. It is a pity as Lake Powell looks very inviting and it would definitely be cool to take a boat trip there, e.g. to the Rainbow Bridge, the world's largest natural bridge.

Damming the Colorado River caused the Glen Canyon, which lies to the north of the dam, to become flooded and has subsequently created the large reservoir called Lake Powell:
