Lake Powell a Treasured Paradise!

No doubt about it, Lake Powell is a Treasured Paradise for boating, water skiing, fishing, exploring and nature seeing. I just had to paint a water color of this beautiful Lake. Lake Powell is located on the border of Arizona and Utah and is the 2nd largest manmade lake in the U.S. by volume. It took 13 years to fill this lake to its high water mark in 1980. Now that's a big lake! Just click on the painting to look around. While doing research, I discovered some fascinating

See more at
bay names called Gunsight and Last Chance. Also, my favorite name, Cookie Jar Butte which looks like a huge cookie jar formed out of rock. The scenery of this lake reminds me of the old Roadrunner & Coyote Cartoon. The lake's back drop is a beautiful red rust color with buttes and canyons. This lake is a prime fishing lake. Here's a few lake records: Striped Bass 48 lbs, 2 oz, Large mouth Bass 10 lbs, 2 oz, Smallmouth Bass 5 lbs, 1oz, 15 oz, Northern Pike 16 lbs, 7 oz, Brown Trout 17 lbs, and Rainbow Trout 16 lbs, 7 oz.

Life is short, get away from the big screen and get on a big stream, like Lake Powell. Find more decor maps at They make Great Gifts.
