I found this cool satellite photo of Desolation Canyon on the Green River of Utah. Click on the link to view it. As you can see from the photo, the Green comes out of the flatlands to the North and descends into the craggy, remote canyon. It is a spectacular canyon that is over a mile deep. It is truly remote, which means is is still incredibly pristine. Beautiful beaches, incredible history, fun rapids, and spectacular scenery.
The only way to access and see Desolation Canyon is on a river trip. We at Western River Expeditions have been leading rafting expeditions since 1961 and take more people through Desolation Canyon than any other outfitter. When it comes to Green River white water rafting, no company has more experience.
Check out our Green River rafting trips. They are the perfect family vacation. You can also combine your Green River trip with two night stay at a beautiful riverside resort. The Green River and Ranch combination trip offers the best of the river world, beautiful accomodations, and fun land-based activities.
