Can Visitors Love The Grand Canyon To Death?

Arizona is, of course, the Grand Canyon State, and the national park is considered a crown jewel of the system.

But the park, and the canyon itself, are facing challenges.

Writer Kevin Fedarko and photographer and filmmaker Pete McBride will be speaking about some of them tonight at the Mesa Arts Center, as part of the National Geographic Live series. Their presentation is called “Between River and Rim: Hiking the Grand Canyon,” and they did just that — hike the whole thing.

They join The Show's Mark Brodie to talk about their experience and what they learned.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
