Denver Museum of Nature & Science Opens The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science presents a new photo exhibition The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict, which shows us the river that has defined the landscape and the water issues of the West.

Peter McBride shot many of the photographs from the air. Jonathan Waterman, at times joined by McBride, spent approximately 100 days paddling the river’s 1,450 miles, beginning from its source in the Rocky Mountains and completing the final leg of his journey with a 10-day walk across dry riverbed that once reached the Sea of Cortez.

Pete McBride is an award winning photographer, writer and visual storyteller whose love of adventure, cultures and the outdoors have taken him on assignment throughout the world to over 60 countries.
