Lake Powell Glen Canyon Dam

Lake Powell isn’t actually a lake. It’s a reservoir that was created when the Glen Canyon Dam was erected in 1963 to make water more regularly available to people in the seven states making use of the Colorado River for water. The dam caused water to fill up Glen Canyon to create the new “lake,” which is more shaped like fingers than a typical blob-shaped lake.
