A serene & colorful family vacation.
For right-brained people
The Green River is not only green, it is olive and moss and ochre and crimson and terra cotta and cinnamon and chestnut and aqua and azure. It is Sage Creek and Red Wash and Rainbow Park. It is red cedars, yellow marmots and blue herons. It is a veritable Sherwin-Williams catalog of indescribable beauty. Each mile brings a new vista: sheer rust-red blocks of Uintah Quartzite, (oops, got a little left-brained there, sorry), wide wedding-cake tiers of creamy Weber Sandstone, or jumbled hillsides of juniper and spruce. There are numerous side canyons, grottoes and waterfalls to explore, lots of wildlife to see, and big beaches to enjoy. There are places to swim, places to daydream and places to play. There are fun rapids with inflated names like Disaster Falls and Hell’s Half Mile to make things exciting and there are stretches of peaceful flatwater to make things relaxing. And everything is within Dinosaur National Monument so the area is pristine and protected and peaceful.
