As the Colorado River goes, so go the parks. Today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler has a fascinating article (with videos) about how climate change is affecting the Colorado River (seen in this image from Navajo Bridge at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area) and Canyonlands National Park (no, that’s not the Colorado River – it’s the Green River – but it’s in Canyonlands, hence the inclusion). It’s definitely worth a read. The last two, short videos in the article are especially interesting.

After you’ve read the article, stick around and listen to Podcast Episode 53, which interviews the journalist/photographer assigned to the Colorado River Special Report. You’ll also hear about Grand Portage National Monument. Makes me want to go visit that national monument for myself.
