Record level- This group of images includes aerial photographs of the Glen Canyon Region taken during the flight from Flagstaff to Hite, Utah, as well as pictures taken while on the boat trip through Glen Canyon. Specific sites depicted are Forgotten Canyon, Hite Ferry, California Bar, Stanton Dredge, Iceberg Canyon, Navajo Creek Bar, Oak Canyon, Wishbone Canyon, Hidden Passage, Olympia Bar, Smith Fork, and the Crossing of the Fathers, among others. Also shown are various campsites, camping gear, cabin ruins, inscriptions, petroglyphs, rock formations, and driftwood fires. Several photos reveal the remains of mining operations: machinery, sluice troughs, rail tracks, caves or tunnels, a gravesite with tombstone, and even an old lantern and pedal sewing machine. A number of artistic photographs portray Katie Lee in different poses, and also show patterns in the mud made by its drying and cracking. Fifty-three of the one hundred twenty-nine photographs in this group are digitized, but all may be viewed at the Cline Library Special Collections and Archives Department.
