Lake Powell, named after Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell, was created by the flooding of Glen Canyon by the Glen Canyon Dam in 1963, and in 1972, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area was then later established. From that point, Lake Powell was on the map and could be accessed by not just one, but two different states, and quickly became a spot where memories were made, bonds were created, and dreams came true.
Roughly 5-6 hours from Salt Lake City, it is a premier destination spot for locals and tourists alike.
