After my hike in the desert I wanted to recuperate so I decided to enjoy the Lake Powell resort's jacuzzi. There I met a guy named Alan who recently left Big Sky, Montana to take a job at the resort. We quickly struck up a conversation and agreed to go for a tour of Lake Powell Dam the next day. The reason for the dam was described in my preceding post. American tax dollars pay for guided tours of the dam and the hydroelectric plant that generates electricity. Our tour guide chose his words carefully but did mention the dam would be completely useless if the lake dried up once and for all.
Will be headed north to do a quick hike over at Zion and then on to Cove Fort. (I am very excited about Cove Fort)
