I just finished re-reading Edward Abbey‘s Hayduke Lives! where our favorite fictional eco-terroist gang takes on Bishop Love and the forces of mining in the Arizona Strip. I love Abbey’s writing and share many of his sentiments about the canyon country.
“Hite will rise again,” says Abbey — through the character Seldom Seen Smith. The town was flooded by Lake Powell but there was (is?) a marina there.
While looking for graphics for the Eagle River watershed this morning I ran across a great photo of Hite Marina on the Colorado River District website. It seems that the 10 year drought in the Southwestern U.S. has done the job for old Seldom Seen. Click on the thumbnail graphic above and to the right for the photo.
Here’s the link to the Colorado River District photo gallery.
