The Hindered Path

Antelope Island and Lake Powell - Page ArizonaThe path of the Colorado River through the high desert was hindered by the erection of the Glen Canyon Dam in 1964. We see the fan of its concrete face as the river turns toward Page, Arizona. The flow of the Colorado was slowed by the dam in order to flood Glen Canyon and form the massive Lake Powell, forever changing the landscape. Meanwhile the nature of the river remains unchanged as it continues to meander, winding and looping its way through the terrain on its westward path. In its wake, Antelope Island formed at the junction of two flooded canyons, changing the character of this ancient slice of land.
