Echo Bay is near the old confluence of the Virgin and Colorado Rivers, where John Wesley Powell ended his 1869 journey. Armijo, Smith, Odgen, and others followed the Virgin River to the Colorado River, passing close to Echo Bay. This historic photo was taken in 1961 and is part of the Anita Freeman Collection.
