I’ve been learning a lot of the history of the Grand Canyon reading the book Emerald Mile. The history of the Glen Canyon Dam, effectively creating Lake Powell, was and still is controversial, but the allure of the place still holds strong. “If there is a point to being in the canyon, it is not to rush but to linger, suspended in a blue-and-amber haze of in-between-ness, for as long as one possibly can.”
