The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Here's Glen Canyon, where the Colorado River gets dammed, bent and Instagrammed

As this video shows, Arizona's Glen Canyon Dam catches the waters to the Colorado River to make Lake Powell, a vast reservoir in the desert. Below the dam, the river winds through the many twists and turns of Glen Canyon -- including the spectacular Horseshoe Bend -- before heading south to the Grand Canyon. The video shows the remarkable scale of the lake, dam and river, seen from above and afloat.
