  Title: Lake Powell, SE Utah and NE Arizona, USA
  Description:
  The Glen Canyon National Recreation Area with Lake Powell and Monument
  Valley  in both SE Utah and NE Arizona (36.5N, 110.0W) are well known
  tourist areas  in the southwest.  Water from Lake Powell feeds the Colorado
  River before it  rages through the Grand Canyon.  The darker green areas
  indicate the high  forested country of Navajo Mountain and Black Mesa in
  Arizona.  Shadows from   the many steep sided hills add a near three
  dimensional effect to the scene.
