    Two friends. 113 days. 1,700 miles. One endangered river. From October 2011 to January 2012, Will Stauffer-Norris and Zak Podmore hiked and paddled from Wyoming's Wind River Mountains to Mexico following the Colorado River system from its farthest inland source to the sea, filming and narrating on the fly. The resulting film, Remains of a River, is an unforgettable story of friendship, adventure and environmental degradation. At turns inspiring and alarming, this will have you laughing, marveling, shaking your head, and maybe planning an adventure of your own.

      After 113 days, Will and Zak’s magnificent adventure comes to an end. They’ve traversed the Colorado River from its source in the Rockies to the Sea of Cortez. There’s sadness that the journey is over, but even greater is the pain of seeing what has happened to this mighty river. The water has all been removed; the river bed is dry. What was once almost two million acres of diverse wetlands has shrunk by 95%. Bravo guys for sharing this great tale with us!

        For the first time after portaging around a dam, Will and Zak are confused. Where did the Colorado River go? Now all the flow has been divided up into concrete-lined canals. They see the river’s water “converted into lettuce.” Crossing the border into Mexico to finish tracing the path of this great river, they enter unknown territory. What will they find as they make their way to the sea?
