2011 Summer field work : Colorado College State of the Rockies Project


The State of the Rockies Project summer research team headed south in 2011 with a tall task, to follow the Colorado River from its headwaters in the Rockies, to the Mexican Delta where the River traditionally reached the sea. From Colorado Springs the team crossed Colorado over the Rockies into the Colorado River Basin, then traveled south into Utah and Arizona, continuing all the way into Mexico, tracing the course of the River and investigating the issues in the Basin. From the border they headed back north, stopping at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and the Navajo Nation, before finally making the long haul back home to Colorado Springs. Covering over 3400 miles, the trip reinforced the gravity of many issues the team had already been researching from afar at Colorado College.
