Capitol Reef National Park in Utah

Capitol Reef National Park in Utah

Share/Bookmark

Capitol Reef National Park is an evocative world of spectacular colored cliffs, hidden arches, massive domes, and deep canyons. It is a place that includes the finest elements of Bryce and Zion Canyons in a less crowded park that can offer a more relaxing experience than either of those more-famous Utah attractions. It is named for a particularly colorful section of the fold where rounded Navajo sandstone forms capitol-like domes and sheer cliffs form a barrier to travel, often referred to as a reef. The park stretches from north-northwest to south-southeast for 70 miles (112 km) and generally narrows in width (east-west) from up to 12 miles (19 km) in the north to as little as 1 mile (1.6 km) near the southern end. It lies along the northwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau, where it encompasses about three-fourths of the nearly 100-mile- (160-km-) long Waterpocket Fold.

Huge Hoover Dam in Las Vegas

Huge Hoover Dam in Las Vegas

Share/Bookmark

Hoover Dam impounds Lake Mead, and is located near Boulder City, Nevada. Originally called Boulder Dam, this engineering marvel was re-named for Herbert Hoover, the 31st President of the United States. In 1935, Hoover Dam was the largest in the world and although long since surpassed it is still an amazing structure and a marvel of engineering – a huge, curving wall of plain concrete 660 feet thick at the base and 726 feet high set between the vertical walls of Black Canyon, accompanied by strangely-angled pylons, cables, power generating plants and other machinery. Its 17 generators produce 4 to 5 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity annually. That\’s enough power to supply a half million homes for one year, according to the Bureau of Reclamation, the agency responsible for maintaining and operating Hoover Dam. By the end of 1992, upgrading on the dam’s massive generators increased the original nameplate capacity from 1,345 megawatts to slightly more than 2,000 megawatts.
