John Wesley Powell -- 150 years ago today

It was May 24, 1869 that ten brave and/or foolish men set off from Green River, Wyoming on a Journey of Discovery. They rowed 21-foot long rowboats the entire length of the Green River to its confluence with the Colorado and then through the entirety of the Grand Canyon. Six of these men passed the Grand Wash Cliffs exiting the Grand Canyon, and 122 days after their departure, their journey ended near the mouth of the Virgin River.

I run a church called Church of Flowing Water. I should add May 24 as a holiday.
