Glen Canyon

Leave a comment Standard

Glen Canyon is a natural canyon mostly in southeastern and south-central Utah. A small part of the lower end of Glen Canyon extends into the northern part of Arizona and terminates at the Vermilion Cliffs area in the United States. Like the Grand Canyon to the south, Glen Canyon is part of the immense system of canyons carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries.

In 1963, a reservoir, Lake Powell, was created by the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam, in the Arizona portion of Glen Canyon.

We didn’t get to explore much of it, because it was quite a long drive from our campground, and we sort of stumbled across it as we were touring the Vermilion Cliffs. It was quite a pleasant surprise! We’ll definitely include the whole of Lake Powell on a future trip to include all of the Utah parks.
