Lake Powell is the result of building a dam and taming the Colorado River into a series of lakes that sparkle in the desert heat. Unfortunately, the spectacle is a sad one, as a huge portion of the waters of the once wild river evaporate helplessly in the heat or percolate by the thousands of gallons through the porous sandstone lake bed. Despite all that, there isn't anything quite like the sight of this blue lake in the midst of red hot sandstone lands.
