The Lower Colorado River, that portion between Hoover Dam and the Sea of Cortes, lacks the scenic grandeur of the upper portions of the river. No single heroic figure like John Wesley Powell is associated with this stretch of the Colorado. There is no epic tragedy like Glen Canyon Dam. For what it lacks in grandeur, tragedy, and heroics, it makes up for in engineering errors, political intrigue, diplomatic blunders, and high levels of greed.
