Entering Swallow Canyon of the Green River

Detailed Description

View looking downstream at the red sandstone walls of Swallow Canyon. This small canyon is one of two canyons that divide Browns Park into series of intermittent alluvial-meandering and bedrock canyon segments. Unlike Red Canyon and Lodore Canyon, the slope of Swallow Canyon is not controlled by debris flows, and thus does not have any rapids.
