'DamNation': “Desert Goddess” Remembers Arizona’s Glen Canyon

By

The creation Glen Canyon Dam in 1963 and the formation of Lake Powell, flooded much of one of America’s natural wonders, Glen Canyon.

When the Glen Canyon Dam was approved in April 1956, a group of archeologists and river runners set out to document more than 250 culturally significant sites and 125 side canyons that would be flooded by the project. One of those river runners was Katie Lee, a folk singer and Hollywood starlet turned activist. As she describes, “We would go around a corner, and spread out before us would be this incredible site … Everything was in the right position; everything was perfect.”
