Accessible only by boat, Defiance House is located in the Canyon of the Ancients, one of the many fingers of Lake Powell. The controversial reservoir, flooded many of the canyons and archaeological sites in and around Glen Canyon, Utah.

I had an opportunity to return to this Native American Cultural Site on a recent trip to Lake Powell, where I went to celebrate a close friend’s birthday and breath in the desert air. While the cliche image of Lake Powell involves board shorts and spring breakers, I have always made exploring the surrounding desert and endless canyons a priority.

Although a cool swim and a cold beer never hurt, Thanks for all the trips Nathan!
