And in Lake Powell today …

Gregory Butte’s elevation is 4600 feet; Lake Powell right now is at 3631 and dropping. As the lake’s levels drop, more of what used to be emerges. By next spring, we should be able to see many of Glen Canyon’s cultural and natural wonders that are at higher elevations emerge from the the lake, according to the Glen Canyon Institute, which provided these photos.
