Photos and videos: Green River, October 2020

This page features drone footage and ground-based photos of the Green River, near Moab, Utah, and north of Canyonlands National Park.

The Green, which begins in Wyoming’s Wind River Range, is the most significant tributary of the Colorado River. These videos and photos show the Green around Bowknot Bend, named by explorer and geologist John Wesley Powell for the river’s circuitous route.
