This book dealt with the unbelievable adventure conducted by John Wesley Powell, running the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon and climbing its walls with one arm! This book was taken from John Wesley Powell's personal diary that he created on this adventure and makes for very interesting reading. I read this through like a novel, it was a great book. I admire Powell quite a bit, so I'm biased, but his narrative flows well and you can really feel the difficulty and adventure that they went through. You really feel the loss when the party splits up, and you feel the accomplishment when they finally reach another human being. I also enjoy the illustrations, especially the cover.

Most of Lake Powell, along with Rainbow Bridge National Monument, is located in Utah. It is a major vacation spot that around two million people visit every year. It is the second largest man-made reservoir by maximum water capacity in the United States behind Lake Mead, storing 24,322,000 acre feet (3. m3) of water when full

Lake Powell is truly massive, backing up water hundreds of feet deep and hundreds of miles long from the Glen Canyon dam (Page AZ) to north of Hite Utah. You can't get the whole scope from the dam or Wahweap Marina, so if you are able take a boat tour out on the lake itself. Date of experience: November 2019. Even though this lake is man made, and there is something to be said about the changes to the eco system by submerging it all under water, it has created other opportunities and changes to the landscape.

Lake Powell is definitely the main attraction of Glen Canyon National Park, but don’t forget about exploring all the beautiful spots on dry land. Horseshoe Bend is probably the most popular day hike by far. We stopped by to catch sunset here.

In the late 1970s, Colin Warren set out to circumnavigate the entire two-thousand-mile shoreline of Lake Powell in a canoe. Although his adventurous (and eventful) trip ended prematurely for a number of very justifiable reasons, the book that came out of that trip should suffer no such fate.

"Velvet Waters, Canyon Walls" is a rare photographic and literary look at Utah and Arizona's Lake Powell before it had ever completely filled. Before a white, calcite ring had encircled its entire shoreline. Before the debate over putting Lake Powell in Glen Canyon had reignited and become the heated topic it is today. The book is also unique in that it looks at Lake Powell, a spectacular although manmade reservoir, as a place worth being, as a place full of nature and wonder and the elements, not just as a water storage facility and a crime, as so many pro-Glen Canyon advocates would have people believe it is.

As the debate over Glen Canyon and Lake Powell heats up, I hope this book will find a new audience, and I hope Colin Warren is able to write a new chapter or two for it, in which he goes into more detail about his actual trip. It's a shame an excerpt from this book wasn't included in the recent anthology "The Glen Canyon Reader"; it would have been a perfect selection to represent Glen Canyon post-Glen Canyon Dam.
