National Geographic : 1964 Apr
Arc of 710-foot-high Glen Canyon Dam blocks the Colorado as the river snakes across the Arizona desert. Beside it, travelers on U. S. 89 cross the world's highest steel-arch bridge. Only 16 feet low er than Hoover Dam, Glen Canyon bulks a third larger. Reservoir water has risen 300 feet since it began backing up in March, 1963 (next two pages). Green lawns of Page, built as a construction town but now a permanent city, gleam where nothing stood 10 years ago. Fairways of Page's irrigated golf course form a maze in the foreground. Trailer camp beyond town is being abandoned. 559 Kn nA'Ho Mk'Fiv V WAiTFk MFAYFR2FnWARI iRFI OW ,iAN!
