Grandview Point, Canyonlands

View from Grandview Point, Canyonlands National Park, Utah

The river below is the Green River, which merges with
the Grand just south of this to create the Colorado
The Green River, which starts in the Wind Mtns of Wyoming, 
has a 70% larger drainage basin than the Colorado
The road on the right is the White Rim Trail, a 4-wheel
drive road that follows the edge of the canyon rim for over 40 miles
The green along the river are forests of Cottonwood trees
