Photos by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | The Colorado River is drying up: it hasn't reached the ocean in two decades. In 2014 a binational agreement provided for the release of a surge of water equal to less than 1% of the river's annual flow in an effort to restore parts of its delta estuary. I recently returned to visit one of the restoration sites and was heartened to see that a small baseflow of water has turned a section of arid wasteland back into a forest of native vegetation. This gives me hope for nature's resilience as long as we work to protect it. To learn more about the Colorado and other rivers, #followme @pedromcbride #petemcbride #ColoradoRiver
