Last month the Colorado River met the sea for the first time in about two decades thanks to what’s called a “pulse flow.” Local photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride was there to see it. He was taking photos for an upcoming article in Outside Magazine. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen spoke with him this week, about the experience.
