Did a self guided trip down the Green River through Canyonlands. If you do car/tent camping you can do this. Check in with Tex's Riverways in Moab, They will set you up with everything you don't have for the trip and are reasonable. They drop...More

We spent the day in and around Green River and if it weren't for the John Powell Museum and Crystal Geyser I'd have said it was a total loss. The gas station and restaurant had poor service from unenthusiastic people and I will just fill...More

I recently took a six day canoe trip down the Green River in the Canyonlands. The trip was wonderful - incredible scenery, petrogylphs and Anasazi ruins. Definitely a trip to remember. We rented two canoes and one kayak for five of us through Tex's Riverways...More
