Lately, I have been posting photos of the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon on the Rafting Grand Canyon website. I have so far posted there photos of the first 75 miles of the trip. I am now shifting gears, and will continue this presentation in the form of blogs here (believesteve.wordpress.com).
The Colorado River in the Grand Canyon is now uniquely threatened by a proposal to build a tramway from the eastern rim of the Canyon to the river, at the confluence of the Little Colorado River and the Colorado River. This area was featured in a prior post on Rafting Grand Canyon. This tramway would do irreparable harm to the scenic and wilderness values of the Grand Canyon and Grand Canyon National Park. Those who love our irreplaceable wild places must now lend their efforts to the defeat of this proposal.
The last post ended at 75 Mile Canyon, and this post begins with 75 Mile Rapid, and continues to Papago Creek. 9 photos.
