It’s been more than 50 years since the Colorado River regularly reached the sea. But this past spring, the U.S. and Mexico let the water storm through its natural delta for a grand experiment in ecological restoration.
Photographer Pete McBride traveled by paddle board and boat along the length of the river to witness the dam being opened and he shares the story on the Morning Magazine. McBride’s photos appear in the July edition of Outside magazine.
