You are a proud Coloradan, Westerner, or transplant to the West, but how well do you know the Colorado River? This antique waterway snakes nearly 1,500 miles, from the Rocky Mountains through the Grand Canyon to the Gulf of Mexico, with dams and diversions to surrounding western states. But many scientists say the river's in trouble. Drought and other factors have caused the river tides to recede. See a visual representation of theses changes with Peter McBride and Jonathan Waterman’s 100-day journey through the entire stretch of the river. McBride shot many photos from the air and at times, joined Waterman paddling at the river below. Daily 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
