Hear It Here – Interview w/ Photographer Pete McBride

This week, KZYR’s morning DJ Steve Leigh had an awesome opportunity to interview Outside Magazine photographer Pete McBride (pictured above, left). This spring, when the overused Colorado River actually reached its delta for the first time in 50 years, McBride traveled along with a few lucky explorers on SUPs and canoes to document their once-in-a-lifetime paddling journey through what is usually a dry wasteland. Read the Outside Magazine article about their experience here. McBride had attempted a similar journey in 2008, but ran out of water 90 miles from the ocean and had to hike the rest of the way. “It was hell,” he said. “A total slog. Worst trip I’ve ever done.” But on Friday, March 28, 2014, a large pulse of the Colorado River was finally set free, briefly reaching the ocean and helping to restore the formerly riparian ecosystems of the dry, dusty delta. And Pete McBride got to be one of the lucky few along for the ride.
