In this behind-the-scenes video for Alexandra Cousteau's Expedition Blue Planet, the team continue their cross-North America trek investigating water issues across the continent. Watch as they muck through the icy cold headwaters of the Colorado River filming "The Headwaters", raft its biggest water through Cataract Canyon in Utah and make their way up into Canada.

Next up: We drive south of the border into Mexico to track the empty riverbed of the Colorado down to the Sea of Cortez, where this great river no longer reaches the sea.

Expedition Blue Planet: North America is a 138-day interactive exploration of critical water issues across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The expedition will tour more than 14,500 miles in a biodiesel tour bus converted to serve as a “rolling Calypso” for daily production and web broadcasting of films, photos, and findings. In addition to filming a range of critical water issues on the Colorado River, the Gulf Coast, Tennessee Valley, Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay, expedition leader Alexandra Cousteau and her team will stop in 20 communities along the route to host watershed action days.
