Rio Rica

The Little Snake River is the last of its kind in the Colorado River Basin. It does the work that keeps the rest of the Colorado River system functioning by moving millions of tons of sediment downstream in seasonal pulses, recharging downstream beaches and bottomland and critical fish habitat. It’s the last undammed major tributary between the Rockies and the Gulf of Mexico—for now. Follow Rica Fulton on an adventure discovering a hidden tributary of the Colorado River.
