Desert canyon bombs boat, kills 2 at 'Lake' Powell
by GW Hayduke
HALLS CROSSING UT -- The strong, beautiful and unforgiving desert hit back at us Friday in Glen Canyon (aka the controversial 'Lake' Powell reservoir on the Arizona-Utah boundary) when a huge rock fell off a sandstone canyon wall and crushed a power boat, killing two boaters.
Let me be very clear, I do not celebrate the death of these 2 people in any way. I'm sad they died and feel sorry for their families.
What will the Bush/Cheney National Park Service do to keep boats away from these deadly rockfall areas on 'Lake' Powell? Likely nothing, due to political pressure from the power boating lobby.
Boaters be safe, stay away from the dangerous 'Lake' Powell reservoir.
We must all be aware that nature bats last, and to many people 'Lake' Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam are crimes against nature.
