Source to Sea

Source to Sea

After hiking up into Wyoming's Wind River Range to the source of the Green River on Wednesday October 12, 2011, two Rockies Project field researchers began a journey down the length of the Colorado River Basin.

Basin MapOn January 29, 2012, they reached the Sea of Cortez. From portaging the numerous dams of the basin, to slogging through the remnants of the Colorado River delta, the two researchers reported from the field on the state of the basin. The two Rockies Project field researchers bring a personal narrative of the river they winessed to this year's Rockies Project- The Colorado River Basin: Agenda for Use, Restoration, and Sustainability for the Next Generation.
