It is thrilling for us to realize that we have been very close source of the Colorado River in the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a tiny creek that grows into a mighty river when it drains into Lake Mead on the Arizona-Nevada border.
Today, our route followed some of the most scenic and dramatic sections of the 1,450 mile Colorado River. The river meanders through urban areas where people use for recreation activities and into agricultural areas as a vital water source for farming. We were impressed and happy to note that even in the middle of summer, the river seemed to have an abundance of water.
Tonight we are staying at Grand Junction.
