Overview

Early in September of 1911 my brother Emery and I landed in Green River City, Wyoming, ready for the launching of our boats on our long-planned trip down the Green and Colorado rivers.
For ten years previous to this time we had lived at the Grand Canyon of Arizona, following the work of scenic photography. In a general way we had covered much of the country adjacent to our home, following our pack animals over ancient and little-used trails, climbing the walls of tributary canyons, dropping over the ledges with ropes when necessary, always in search of the interesting and unusual.
After ten years of such work many of our plans in connection with a pictorial exploration of the Grand Canyon were crowned with success. Yet all the while our real ambition remained unsatisfied.
We wanted to make the "Big Trip"-as we called it; in other words, we wanted a pictorial record of the entire series of canyons on the Green and Colorado rivers.
The time had come at last, after years of hoping, after long months of active preparation.

Meet the Author

ELLSWORTH L. KOLB moved to Needles, California, shortly after the making of the film, but continued his work on the Colorado, teaming up with a barnstormer to pilot the first plane ever to fly in and out of the Grand Canyon. He passed away in 1961 at the age of 83. His brother Emery Kolb took the movie on the road but returned to the Canyon and served as lead boatman for a United States Geological Survey expedition through the Grand Canyon to map and survey the gorge in 1923. He continued to photograph tourists along Bright Angel Trail until his death in 1976 at the age of 95.
