Letting Go – Glen Canyon

Glen Canyon Dam-8665

Crossing the Colorado River at Page, Arizona, we watch the arrested flow of the river push against the arched back of the Glen Canyon Dam. With what little remaining view we have of the walls of Glen Canyon, we get a hint of the magnificence this canyon displayed prior to the construction of the dam. When we built this dam, we let go of some of our past, sacrificing geological and archeological treasures for the sake of saving water and extracting energy…perhaps, someday we will let go of that idea too and set the waters free so that we may once again marvel at the canyon and explore its hidden treasures.
