Lake Powell is the outcome of the damming of the San Juan and Escalante Rivers, and feeds into the Colorado River Grand Canyon river area. The geography consists of sheer cliffs of sandstone with year-round lake water all around. It is right next to the city of Page, Arizona. Many species visit this area, but not very many are seen frequently. In summer the area easily gets over 100 degrees fahrenheit. The lake is used by many people for water recreation. The lake system consists of one long and large channel with many canyons jetting out from both sides, and the Escalante and San Juan river split at the end.
