Artist's Description

The last shot of a 1900 mile red rock road trip came as we trudged up the hill after enjoying a dinner cruise on Lake Powell. Here virga (rain that doesn’t reach the ground) catches the last rays of the dying sun over the shores of Lake Powell. The photo was shot from AZ, but what you see is in Utah. Part of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

Lake Powell was created by the building of Glen Canyon dam which flooded hundreds of miles of Glen Canyon, backing water up almost all the way from the Arizona line to Moab, Utah. Lake Powell has more shoreline than California and provides major recreation and waterfowl habitat. The dam produces electricity for all of the surrounding states. Arizona, USA
