United States Atlas > Travel Photos | Lake Powell
Lake Powell, Utah is stunning in its setting among the red cliffs and
rock formations of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Visitors
flock here to houseboat, waterski, wakeboard, and fish on its blue-green
waters. Remote canyons invite exploration, whether by hiking,
canoe, or kayak. The Cathedral in the Desert is a surreal chamber
of red rock, green mosses, and ferns, illuminated by a sunbeam through a
fissure at the top. Horseback riders and hikers can visit Rainbow
Bridge, a 290-foot arch of red stone which is the largest natural bridge
in the world. Tour boats also offer access to this and other
popular spots. Page, Arizona, located on the southwestern corner of
Lake Powell, is the ideal access point for the lake, as well as the Grand
Canyon and other gorgeous national parks in the region.
