dc.description.abstract In 2015 the non-profit, American Rivers, named the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon the #1 most endangered river 2015. With threats of unprecedented development and multiple varieties of pollution, one of the seven natural wonders of the world could have been drastically altered. The federal government blocked these large-scale development plans in 2016, but the Canyon continues to face threats of exploratory uranium mining. At the bottom of the Grand Canyon, I initially searched for how this beloved place is currently affected by human activity. However, when on the Colorado River at the bottom of the Canyon, it becomes apparent that the Canyon has a greater effect on humans than we do on it. With photos and writing, this piece aims to show what the Canyon has done to me, and the party of 14 I traveled with, as well as ultimately advocate for protection of our natural resources. This project was made possible by funding from F&M's Nissley Scholars Grant. en
