Glen Canyon is a canyon that is located in southeastern and south central Utah and northwestern Arizona within the Vermilion Cliffs area. It was carved by the Colorado River.

Here parts of the canyon appear almost black in color due to the waters of Lake Powell, a reservoir created in the canyon by the Glen Canyon Dam.
