izona and S. Utah




The Glen Canyon National Recreation Area with Lake Powell and Monument Valley in both SE Utah and NE Arizona (36.5N, 110.0W) are well known tourist areas in the southwest. Water from Lake Powell feeds the Colorado River before it rages through the Grand Canyon. The darker green areas indicate the high forested country of Navajo Mountain and Black Mesa in Arizona. Shadows from the many steep sided hills add a near three dimensional effect to the scene.
