This program follows the Colorado River from its headwaters in Rocky Mountain National Park through Utah's Westwater Canyon, the national parks of Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef and Zion, the rapids of Cataract Canyon and the Grand Canyon, and into Mexico's Gulf of California. The stunning cinematography is set to music by some of the world's greatest classical composers (Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak). Actor Joseph Campanella narrates.
