Packing up this morning to head home after a week watching the environmental pulse flow on the Colorado River into Mexico. Ran across this in one of my notebooks, from Bob Snow, an attorney in the U.S. Interior Solicitor’s Office who has been working on this since the ’90s and helped negotiated the international agreement that enabled this to happen. We were standing on the dam, watching the water flow south:
I think this is the most beautiful sight I have seen in my career.
To be fair, Bob is the kind of guy who grins a lot anyway. But this week, the grin seemed bigger.
