For 17 years, Eric Balken has sailed the choppy waters of Lake Powell along with stepping foot on the hundreds of slot canyons that have revealed themselves after being submerged for decades at Glen Canyon. In those 17 years, he’s worked for the Glen Canyon Institute, a non-profit organization with a simple, yet eye-raising mission statement: restore a free-flowing Colorado River through Glen Canyon and Grand Canyon.
