From (Blair Shiff):

“Basically, we just have too many straws in the drink,” said [Peter McBride]. “The reality is it’s everyone in the West. It supplies water for 30 million people, seven states and we’re all users. There’s not really one culprit out there. There are some bad boys in the river so to speak, but we’re all users, and we all need to be far more conscious of this river.”

McBride’s artistic and educational findings compile a new exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. “The Colorado River: Flowing through Conflict,” is a collection of McBride’s photographs of the river and its surroudnings. It includes several breathtaking aerial shots taken by McBride while his father piloted a small plane 5,000 feet above the river. The exhibit goes hand-in-hand with McBride and Waterman’s book, “Running Dry: A Journey from Source to Sea Down the Colorado River.”
