Colorado and Utah- Green River Canyon

Really, in this case, the caption says it all.  Except that you need to go there and see it for yourself, because even though I may profit off of you buying the photo, it really can’t do this sight justice. On the other hand, the photo is available, and the 30 or so miles of road between where I took this and the closest US highway are closed until May sometime due to snow.

More then a mile above the Green River Harpers Corner juts out above Echo Park and the Green River Canyon providing wide views for 180 degrees of some of the greatest high desert canyons in North America. Although taken in Colorado, most of this vista is actually in Utah, spanning the border between the two states much like the place it was taken, Dinosaur National Monument.

As I said above, you really do need to go to Dinosaur National Monument.  It’s a gem of a monument, and in this section of it one can have a great deal of privacy while hiking. http://www.nps.gov/dino/index.htm
