As they make their way into remote western Grand Canyon—the “Godscape”—the team members face a constant, unrelenting fear: running out of water. The scarcity of water poses a unifying challenge to all those who want to preserve and develop the park.

The final chapter of a three-part series following photographer Pete McBride and writer Kevin Fedarko as they attempt to hike the length of the Grand Canyon, a feat few have accomplished, and explore the challenges that are threatening the future of this iconic national park.

See how Pete and Kevin got this far by watching Part 1: A 650-Mile Challenge and Part 2: Frozen Shoes and Low on Food
