Preaching aside its great photography
4 May 2019 | by beckyalan-89486See all my reviews

Watched this a couple times on my 4k television. They try to compare pre dam images with today's water flow. The dams tamed the river and made life possible by having water always available year round instead of just during snow melt season. Anyway the pictures are just great and the boating scenes with the big rafting boats convinced me not to try this.
