Hey there, I'm John Wesley Powell.

A 150 years ago, I led a team of 9 people 

on a journey from Wyoming through the Grand Canyon in Arizona. 

Now it's your turn to take me on an adventure, around the globe. 

Print out my handsome-looking paper powell 

and color me however you want, 

take me somewhere exciting, snap a pic, 

and hashtag it #powell150 for a chance to be featured by the USGS 

(I ran that place, you know).
