Little Colorado

The Little Colorado River is a tributary of the Colorado River. The confluence of the Little and the Big Colorado marks the end of the Marble Canyon segment of the Grand Canyon and the beginning of the Upper Granite Gorge. The Colorado River Basin spans 7 states and two countries. It provides drinking water to more than 36 million people and is the irrigation source to millions of acres of farmland. The Colorado River is heavily dammed, diverted and tapped. As a result, this majestic river no longer reaches the Sea.
