J. W. Powell's Perilous River Expedition: From a remote sensing perspective | @USGS_EROS | #StoryMap

Powell's jouney 150 years ago became one of the great surveys of the west that led to the formation of the U.S. Geological Survey. Powell said, "The exploration was not for adventure, but purely for scientific purposes, geographic and geologic." But, it turned out to be an epic adventure. The expedition team left Green River, Wyoming, on May 24, 1869, and made it past the Grand Canyon to the confluence of the Colorado River and the Vigin River on August 30. This StoryMap includes 13 layers and provides several stories of the adventure along the way.(source)
