Dam Fun

In his book Desert Solitaire Edward Abbey said of the Glen Canyon dam (Lake Powell):
“The Beavers had to go and build another goddamned dam on the Colorado. Not satisfied with the enormous silt trap and evaporation tank called Lake Mead (back of Boulder Dam) they have created another even bigger, even more destructive, in Glen Canyon.”

A good problem ... what are you going to do about it? Well, we said get a 30 year old boat, some kayaks, and go. Perfect desert holiday: swim, play, kayak, and hike. Water in the desert is all good. 1,960 miles of canyon shoreline to explore.
