Peter McBride traveled and photographed the entire Colorado River through seven states and two countries to document his journey with Jonathan Waterman in The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict. One of McBride’s challenges was “to find fresh perspectives while focusing on the beauty within the tragedy of such an overtaxed system.” McBride certainly finds that balance. He starts his journey at Snowmass Mountain and ends in Mexico where the Colorado is mostly non-existent. Although the future of the Colorado River seems dire, McBride is optimistic that the delta can be saved. Peter will be interviewed by Colorado Supreme Court Justice, Greg Hobbs, and there will be time for questions.
