’Discover Glen Canyon’

Photo Contest Winners Announced

PAGE, Ariz. – Sharon Simmons, of New Boston, N.H., is the first-place winner of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area’s “Discover Glen Canyon” photo contest.  Sharon’s winning photo of red rock cliffs reflected in Lake Powell, entitled “Peaceful Reflections,” will be printed on the park’s 2007 entrance pass.

“We thank Sharon and all of the other individuals who submitted photos for
this contest,” said Superintendent Kitty Roberts.  “Photographers around the world have long been attracted to Glen Canyon and Lake Powell for the dramatic scenery of this special place.”

Second and third place winners include second-place:  “Lake Powell Storm” by Frank Talbott of Page, Ariz., and third-place: “Padre Butte” by Chris Eaton of Page, Ariz.

A panel of National Park Service employees and local community leaders met in January to select the winning photo. The winners of the contest all receive a free Glen Canyon annual entrance pass.  The pass provides free admission to Glen Canyon National Recreation and normally costs $30.
