5:44 pm
a pronounced white bathtub ring. for wait, quilter, it's a welcome sight. and we can only see the very top of it. if it's almost like if it was a very beautiful person and you could only see their eyes, everything else was covered. so we're seeing just the top. um, i love to be able to see the rest. we'd quilter is a medical student and a river guide to day. he's here with his fiance and his mother, janet quilter, mother and son, are fighting to resurrect the glen canyon. they feel it was a crime to flood it now that i did it. yeah. yeah. that nature, ha, ha, ha,

5:46 pm
this entire area was once submerged. i was for this, this is what i was for. i can't imagine this day in age bearing this underwater again. this is what we're, we want. this is where we fill up piece like this is what i picture. i get excited thinking about coming here with my kids in the future. taken hikes through these canyons, yet thousands of people earn their living from lade powell, mike and paul nick now run a family business offering fishing tours. the striped bass are still biting. what's missing since the water level started falling for the tours to catch them hours of fish this we've been pushing this like my dad and i since i was 2 years, all 1982. i mean, if it continues to go down the way that it is, i mean, we may not even have 5 years left, you know, but hopefully it stays up because i don't want to be looking for another job. you know, i really like what i'm doing. it's not about office out here. mike,
5:47 pm
mcnabb remembers the days when lake powell brim with water up there, the resort. the water was flapping right up against the shore people. if they had a fishing pole, they could cast out their rooms in the warm but water levels have sunk to a historic low. the 2nd largest reservoir in the u. s. is just one 3rd full climate change and drought have lessened inflow. that paul mcnabb says to many u. s. states are over drawing the bank account, taking more water out of the lake, then comes in. the main part of that is, is the need for water. that is just phoenix, l a. there's big cities, vegas, big cities that they're having a lot of people and they're getting bigger. go if they say i don't bang in line at my wedding, they go less golf courses less fountains in las vegas and you know,

5:49 pm
nature. gregory bridge is a natural arc that until last fall stood completely under water. 2 now wade quilter can drive his boat under it, but there are very few people around to witness the world that's re emerging in many side canyons here. for hours. we don't see another soul when navigating this section where tree tops are re emerging weight, quilter has to be extra careful. we're heading to the spiritual heart of glen canyon, the cathedral in the desert. long a place of pilgrimage for hikers. this natural monument could only be seen by divers after the cannon was flooded. but now everyone can marvel at its stunning beauty. so we're only here for a split 2nd, this,
