We joined the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop with this short video, The Most Endangered River in America. This video poem highlights both the beauty and the troubles of this amazing river. The video is directed and written by Pete McBride Productions. The images are stunning and the message is important.
The Colorado River runs 1450 miles across seven states and two countries. This might river supplies water for 36 million people. Even though the river flowed to the sea for 6 million years, the Colorado has not reached the ocean since the late 1990’s. We hope you will take a few moments to view this important video poem.
We think it might leave you speechless on this Wordless Wednesday.
