Featured Photo Gallery: Floating the Green River

From Mineral Bottom to its confluence with the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park, the Green River meanders through 52 miles of Stillwater Canyon, slowly unfurling beneath a constant backdrop of giant redrock cliffs and spires. Off the water, you can take side hikes to centuries-old Puebloan rock art and cliff dwellings, camp on sandy beaches and slickrock benches, and maybe even spot bighorn sheep scrambling around on precipitous rock faces. View this gallery of photos from that trip for inspiration, and then read my story (with a video) to learn more about pulling it off.
