Travelogue will explore Colorado River this Saturday
Rotary Club of Lititz fourth travelogue of the season will feature “Journey into the Great Unknown – The Exploration of the Colorado River.”
The Rotary Club of Lititz Fourth Travel and Adventure Series will be held Saturday, Jan. 30, at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange St. There are two performances: a matinee at 2 p.m. and an evening performance at 7 p.m. A 30-minute musical prelude by Swing Sweet Duo precedes each presentation.
The travelogue features Gray Warriner as the professional cinematographer. In 1869, the deep, desolate canyons of the Colorado and the Green Rivers remained unexplored… the last blank spot on the map of the United States. Major John Wesley Powell lost his right arm in the Civil War, but his driving curiosity pushed him beyond any disability. Four wooden boats would carry Powell and nine men on the last great expedition of discovery in the United States. A geologist, Powell dismissed the warnings of prospectors and Indian legends that told of the river plummeting over 200-foot waterfalls and tunneling underground. He feared nothing, nor was he truly prepared for what he found. Follow in the wake of Powell down the Green River and Colorado River into the great unknown.
