    The Anasazi should teach people that when fires from lightning and man-caused hit in pristine forests and woods, that the floods will be even worse afterwards as the watershed is gone. It will take years to regrow the foliage to prevent that fate. Mud, rocks and boulders move very rapidly and with a lot of force and even devastating actions for anything in the way. The Anasazi can't teach about the effect of such large dams and reservoirs or lakes behind those manmade objects. Their petroglyphs have been hidden and their path to the other side of the Colorado are gone. There are a lot of marks of history below the water and plenty of rocks and boulders waiting for boats and people to hit as the water levels go up and down. The depth of some of the lake water moves up and down due to the various influxes of water from rain, snow and springs each year.

    Drinking water, irrigation water, recreation water and just beauty water is so pretty in the desert in the middle of no-where.

    Plenty people can enjoy those private nooks and canyons in the 100s of miles landings and beaches.
