    Tourists Can Get Closer to the Ceiling?" was an ad dreamed up by the great David Brower and the Sierra Clubin the successful battle to stop a hydroelectric dam that would have flooded huge areas of the Grand Canyon.

    Proponents of the project---of course---had claimed how wonderful the backed up "lake" would be for people to boat on. They had yet to see the unfortunate results just north of there, where another dam was already backing up the Colorado River through the magnificent Glen Canyon---the "Place Nobody Knew" as photographer Eliot Porter called it.

    Thankfully Brower and the Sierra Club were successful, and we don't have another 180 mile long evaporating pool, as Edward Abbey referred to Lake Foul.
