Triple toppled…

Three giant stacks fall at Navajo Generating Station.

The Navajo Generating Station’s three 236 metre smokestacks have been a visual reminder of decades of coal power generation in the Page area of Arizona. But those smokestacks fell in a controlled blast later today.

The towering stacks came to define the skyline near Page and could be seen for miles throughout the surrounding canyon country and Lake Powell. The structures replaced the plant’s original stacks in the 1990s.
