Sunset on the Golden (Green) River
Canyonlands National Park, Utah, 2015
The day before my first overnight river trip was to begin, it rained so hard and so much that Tex's Riverways, who provided my rides to the put-in and from the take-out, couldn't even get to Mineral Bottom. On the day of the beginning of my trip, rain poured as I left my house but gradually decreased as I drove west and then south to Moab, leaving a cloudy but rain-free afternoon for my first 10 miles on the river. That evening, the dark clouds were still hanging around, but they let through this light near my first camp. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
