Glen Canyon

There are endless amazing places on earth spread across the continents. And it's worth knowing about as many as we can even if we may only get to visit them. Glen Canyon and Glen Canyon National Recreation Park  is one of the most amazing places in the world. The National Recreation park stretches from Lee’s Ferry in Arizona to the Orange Cliffs of Southern Utah, U.S.A. The park offers boating, fishing, swimming and kayaking as well as mountain biking, hiking and fantastic scenic drives. More than 3 million visitors come each year to Arizona's Glen Canyon National Recreation Park, which includes Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam. Lake Powell is a reservoir on the Colorado River, straddling the border between Utah and Arizona. It is the second largest man-made reservoir in the United States.
