John Wesley Powell- 175th Birthday

John Wesley Powell was born March 24, 1834 (175 years ago). He always had an adventurous spirit. In 1869, Powell led an expedition through the Grand Canyon, covering nearly 1,000 miles of uncharted canyons and rapids. Future expeditions through the Grand Canyon, led to mapping the terrain and gathering information. Introduce yourself to the Grand Canyon through videos and books. We even have the season three episodes when the Brady Bunch family went on a vacation there.
