  • The water level at Lake Powell has sunk almost 100ft since the beginning of the current 19 year drought. In 2000 it was nearly full. .
💧Now Lake Powell is about 48 percent full, and Lake Mead is about 38 percent full. .
💧A big reason is that Lake Powell has been used to keep Lake Mead from sinking to an elevation of 1,075ft, the point at which the federal government must declare a water shortage under a 2007 agreement. This would cause mandatory water delivery cuts to the Lower Basin states, triggering widespread water rationing. .
💧The Colorado River system supplies water to about 40 million people and 6,300 square miles of farmland in seven states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.

  • “Ours has been the first and, doubtless, will be the last party of whites to visit this profitless locality”

Who’s ridiculous quote is THAT?? 🙄😂 But really such a foreboding statement, as for too many people everything STILL is all about 💰💰💰

The Grand Canyon in 2019 will celebrate its 100th anniversary as a National Park. It now draws more than 6 million visitors a year. 
President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation to create the park in 1919, but Teddy Roosevelt is credited for its early preservation as a game reserve and a National Monument. 
He famously said: “Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it.” . .

So true!!! 😍
