Boaters hanging out on drought-stricken Lake Powell on Memorial Day were treated to a dramatic sight: a monumental section of canyon falling into the water. Footage taken by boater Mila Carter and posted to Instagram shows an enormous chunk of a red canyon wall toppling over into the lake, releasing a cloud of dust and sending columns of water upward.
