When the worlds unveil
We abide the other with grace

Lake Powell 2

On Lake Powell Utah
Lain in the waters
Risen and eroded
What have we here?

The lake, which lies partly in Arizona and mostly in Utah, is more than 500 feet deep in places. While Utah has the lion's share of Powell's crystal clear water, Arizona lays claim to the most important part—the dam. It took 17 years, from march 13, 1963 to June 22, 1980, to fill to the planned level of 3,700 feet above sea level. Lake levels fluctuate depending on the spring runoff from the mountains and the releases needed to produce electricity from the dam's eight generators. ~ Bernard

Well, really out doors!
Breaks rock into small pieces. ~ Karl

Low Water

Lake Powell Low water.
Cooling in the shade
Of high desert mesa
Though water abounds

The last decade has been rough for a key reservoir in the intricate water storage system that sustains much of the American Southwest. Lake Powell, a meandering network of flooded canyons in southern Utah, has seen inflow rates from its key tributaries dwindle due to severe drought. Inflow between 2000 and 2012 has been the lowest 13-year period on record since the lake was created in 1963. ~ Bernard
