In the Americas With David Yetman

As The Waters Of Lake Powell Recede

Season 10, Episode 7 of 10

The Colorado River was dammed at Glen Canyon in the early 1960s. The resulting reservoir, Lake Powell, is the second largest reservoir in the United States. As a prolonged drought grips the southwestern United States the lake is shrinking. The falling water levels reveal a wonderland of canyons from angles never before seen. And the new landscapes reveal fragments of ancient peoples who made Glen Canyon home.
