(4.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Claiming the title of the second highest concrete-arch dam in the United States, Glen Canyon Dam is best known for its role in the creation of Lake Powell, a large reservoir that has become a haven for water recreation and house boating. The dam has a controversial past, as it destroyed an area of federally protected land upon its creation. Take a guided tour and hear the story of the battle between the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the environmental organizations that protested it. Learn how the engineers designed the 220 m (710 ft) dam to deliver massive amounts of hydroelectric power to large areas of the West.
