The Dirty Devil River joins the Colorado nearby Hites Crossing, Utah. Pictured here is the muddy Colorado as it flows through Narrow Canyon at Hite. It's undecided whether to blame the mud-stained water on recent rain or the Dirty Devil. Estimates calculate the Colorado River moves 500,000 pounds of silt every day into Lake Powell. In the Grand Canyon, it's the Supai rock layer's iron oxide that stain the canyon cliffs and give the river its reddish hue.
