Hoping to become famous and rich, the Hydes spent their honeymoon in 1928 descending the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in a homemade boat. Bessie was the first woman ever to attempt it. They disappeared, presumed drowned, though all their effects – including the photos they took – were recovered by search parties.
