A lot of people hike the Grand Canyon because of the scenery or because it’s on their bucket list. Flagstaff author Kevin Fedarko is hiking to raise awareness about environmental threats to one of the country’s most beloved national parks. He’s doing it in sections for a total of 650 miles. He’s documented the trek in this month’s National Geographic in an article titled, “Are We Losing The Grand Canyon?” Kevin Fedarko joins Arizona Public Radio’s Aaron Granillo to talk about his concerns for the canyon’s future.
Aaron Granillo: First off, how are you holding up? It sounds like it’s been a grueling adventure so far.
