One of the greatest events in the history of American exploration was accomplished by John Wesley Powell as he journeyed down the Green and Colorado Rivers through the Grand Canyon.
The dangerous rapids had a treacherous and deafening roar and turbulance beyond imagination.
Broken oars were common as the submerged boulders and turbulant water challenged the frail wooden boats.
This famous and daring nine-hundred mile expedition from May 24th through August 30th, 1869, was lead by the great John Wesley Powell.
The John Wesley Powell River History Museum located in Green River, Utah, has a wealth of information on this great explorer.
