The Power & the Glory Crystal Rapid 1983
The Power and Glory – A Piece of History!
The Power and the Glory poster shows Crystal Rapid in the Grand Canyon flowing at 90,000 CFS in July 1983. This section of the Colorado River had not seen flows like this since the completion of Glen Canyon Dam in 1963. With Climate Change and over-appropriation of water resources throughout the entire river system, such flows may never be seen again.

Anyone making a tax-deductible donation of $20 or more to Colorado Headwaters will receive a copy of the ‘Power and Glory’ poster as our way of saying “Thanks”.
