Here are some facts about the Colorado river and its journey to and through the Grand Canyon. The Colorado River is approximately 1,450 miles long, draining a part of the arid regions on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. The natural course of the river flows from the Continental Divide at La Poudre Pass in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, into the Gulf of California between the Baja California peninsula and mainland Mexico. The watershed of the Colorado River covers 246,000 sq mi (640,000) in parts of seven U.S. states and two Mexican states.The watershed of the Colorado River covers 246,000 sq mi (640,000) in parts of seven U.S. states and two Mexican states.
