Crisp, nice. ~ In 1957, the Museum of Northern Arizona in cooperation with the National Park Service began an intensive geologic study of Glen and San Juan Canyons. This study was part of salvage investigations in archaeology, biology, geology and history, sponsored by the National Park Service in the area to be inundated by Lake Powell, the reservoir formed behind Glen Canyon Dam. This report contains the descriptions of stratigraphic sections and the records of springs inventoried.The area investigated includes all of Glen Canyon, the part of Cataract Canyon downstream from the mouth of Dark Canyon, the reach of San Juan Canyon downstream from Grand Gulch, and the upland region between the San Juan and the Colorado Rivers west of the Clay Hills escarpment. Nineteen stratigraphic sections of rocks ranging from Permian to Jurassic were measured. In addition, four sections of the Late Recent alluvium in San Juan Canyon were measured. A total of 289 springs were inventoried within the region. ~ 140 pages
