As you remember looking out over its deep red walls, could you ever imagine it as a lake, full of water-skiers, houseboats and fishermen? That almost happened! But thankfully in the 1960's a few brave souls took it upon themselves to take on our American Congress and change everything. In 2012 and 2014, Greg Hatten re-enacted their extreme journey down the Colorado River in wooden Dories.
In this episode, he shares his stories and memories of what it was like and how one man changed the future of America and saved one of the 7 wonders of the world.

She and her late boyfriend, Dean Potter, purchased some land and made a home for themselves and their famous BASE jumping dog Whisper. Jen still maintains a residence there and shares with us the magic and mystery of living in one of America's greatest and most beautiful natural settings.
