Might as well check it out. The drought is really affecting this area though. It's still beautiful. If you're passing through make the stop.

It's very beautiful spot for sunrise and sunset, complex colors on the ground, canyon wall and water. If you enjoy nature, it's area you have to there.

You can get into this area with the National Parks Pass. The area is really beautiful with the contrast of the bright blue water and beautiful red cliffs. Be sure to also take a tour of the dam, it is fascinating.
