SCREE Tom and Pat.jpg

Tom Minckley (on the oars) and Patrick Kikut (in front) ride the rapids going through the Grand Canyon during a 2018 test run in planning for the 2019 Sesquicentennial Colorado River Exploring Expedition. The expedition, called SCREE, takes off the exact same date and location as did John Wesley Powell in 1969. Like Powell, they will follow the Green and Colorado Rivers although, obviously, the waterways have changed considerably in the intervening 150 years.
