Photo of the Week: Red-rock Lake

06-11-2012 // NWF Staff

Lake Powell

Lake Powell was formed from the Colorado River when the controversial Glen Canyon Dam was completed in 1966 to provide electricity for the growing population in the Southwest. It’s the second largest man-made lake in the United States and part of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
