Water Week Wrap-Up

By March 24, 2017Water Sources

The week of March 19-25, 2017 is World Water Week where countless organizations and individuals take the time to honor our most precious resource. But you know we ALWAYS celebrate Water Week at Wander Like Water! We reached out on Facebook to find how water has impacted the lives of our friends and family. They shared amazing pictures and memories of water in different places all over the world. Do you believe water is the most beautiful thing?!

Enjoy these pictures and the captions that tell a tale. Perhaps they will inspire an adventure in you 😉

Keep wandering,

Sarah & Patrick

 

"We took our family to the Frio river last summer and we fell in LOVE. It's so beautiful. Definitely an opportunity to teach our kids about littering and how it can ruin beautiful places like the Frio." -Destini Taylor

"The clear geysers of Yellowstone Park are home to micro-organisms and special algae and bacteria! The bacteria in the mats are what give these hot springs their color! Tolerant of insane heat and harsh conditions. Sadly, disrespectful tourists vandalize these beautiful sights each year by throwing trash into them and trying to walk on the mats. Water is life in Yellowstone!" -Shelly Wayne

"This picture is from the Philippines 🇵🇭! You can't see the water, but these rice fields are full of it and the people living here rely on this water to survive! The people living here do not take their water for granted. They know how important it is and how directly it affects their lives!" -Jodi Kirk

"Water is beautiful in so many ways but it's most important to me because I drink it so often. If I forget my Yeti at home I feel awful. #Drinkwaterallday This was a personal favorite water moment though. Snorkeling in Jamaica. Never seen such a beautiful blue!" -Mary Claire Patton

"Summers going to Garner State Park. I went in high school with the cheerleaders and football team and then with family once I was married. This picture from 1980. The water was always beautiful, cool, refreshing and inviting! It still is, too!" -Phyllis Russell

"Lake Powell is home to Glen Canyon Dam. Lake Powell is the main water reserve for the Upper Colorado and holds much needed water for Hoover Dam. Without this lake and dam much needed water would be lost down the mighty Colorado and not stored as it was designed. Water is life in the desert, and so all must do their part to conserve it! But water is also a source of great enjoyment via water sports along the beautiful shores of Lake Powell." -Shelly Wayne

"I will always remember our 9 hour hike down to the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon! Seeing the true power of water and learning of its importance in the Southwest was truly eye opening!" -Patrick Houston

"Mutitjulu Waterhole at Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park (Ayres Rock) in Northern Territory, AUS. One of the few water sources for the native animals and people. Incredible to find water in such a hot dry place. Water = Life." -Timothy Schoultz

"The Bill Cody Dam in Cody, WY holds back runoff from Yellowstone as it comes down the Shoshone River. This water is primarily used for irrigation. When this dam was constructed it was the tallest dam in the world." -Shelly Wayne
