16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunset at Lake Powell in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

One of the most amazing scenes that I have encountered is this view over looking Lake Powell in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The colors of this rugged landscape at sunset are amazing! It is a rough 30 mile dirt road to get to this location and it is so worth the effort. After seeing the sunrise, I decided to spend the day and see the sunset. Boy, was it miserable in the 95 degree heat and blowing winds, but I was rewarded with this fabulous sunset.
