HE Grand Canyon of the Colo­
rado River, widely regarded
as the world’s most Imposing
natural wonder, has suddenly
taken on a new and startling
interest.
A few years ago. when It was as
Inaccessible as the North Pole, John
Wesley Powell won fame by making
the first trip through I t A little later
another adventurer conceived opening
a trail from the canyon's rim down to
*he river, a mile below. It seemed
v
’
.. .
grotesque but the impossible wa^ ac^
complished. and Its accomplishment
has made the canyon's Innermost won
ders accessible to thousands of tour­
ists each year. They come from all
quarters of the world every season In
greater numbers to traverse the
Bright Angel Trail. That trail Is
truly a monument to the daring and
devotion of Its builder
He worked
at It for ten years, almost without help
or financial backing, at one period
spending almost half a year alone In
the vast gorge.
But today Ralph
Cameron, builder of the Bright Angel
Trail, occupying a seat in the United
States Senate voted to him by the
people of Arizona, has his reward.
Greatest Artificial take
But the conquest of the canyon had
hardly been realized when the engi­
neers discovered a new use for It. At
Boulder Canyon, Arizona, the greatest
dam In the world, a third of a mile
high, should impound a lake which,
spreading over a great area In Arizona
and Utah, would be, next to Lake
Michigan, the largest fresh water body
entirely within the United States
Harnessed to mighty turbines, the wa­
ter, falling hundreds of feet, would
produce a power greater than Niagara,
and irrigate an area several times that
of the Nile Basin, which served for
uncounted centuries as granary of the
ancient world
.
The Boulder Canyon dam has not
yet been built, but the people of the
Southwest are as confident of Its con­
struction as that the Colorado will
continue to flow between Its giant
wall»-
