Where the Green River Is Really Green – Flaming Gorge to Browns Park

Submitted by on May 28, 2012 – 9:48 pm One Comment

After recent 4 days of paddling in Canyonlands I took a longer to return back to Colorado.

I spent one day exploring with camera rock art in Nine Mile Canyon in northeastern Utah. Then, I took tour on Flaming Gorge Dam and drove down the Green River through Browns Park to Colorado. The Green River is really very green and clear below the dam. I hope to return back to this section of the river with a kayak or, maybe, a packraft.

I added these three pictures to my stock photography portfolio together with a few others from our paddling down the Green River from the town of the same name to the confluence and up the Colorado River to Potash near Moab.
