Image Caption: STS066-121-001 Colorado River and Lake Powell, Utah, U.S.A. November 1994
Lake Powell, part of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, is featured in this spectacular, southeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. More than 180 miles (290 kilometers) long, Lake Powell has more shoreline than the United States west coast because of the many small canyons feeding off the main canyon. Southeast of the lake stands snowcapped Navajo Mountain [10 388 feet (3168 meters)]. Visible is the northwest-southeast-trending Kaiparowits Plateau, part of the vast Colorado Plateau. A small portion of the Navajo Indian Reservation is discernible along the upper right of the photograph.
