View of the boats and river from a lunch hike vista

Detailed Description

Most of our views were from the river level, where you are intimately connected to subtleties in flow, wind, and temperature. It was a welcome opportunity to view the river from above and gain context. We stopped here on the last full day on the river. The inlet where we parked is only accessible to rafts from the river when the Green River flow is high, as it was during our trip. The impressive side canyons and valleys that drain into the Green are dry, but must host impressive flow in order to incise and leave the river deposits we see now. A meander in the river continues to cut into the arcuate cliff. Vegetation opportunistically grows where sediment and water is available. And the large (to us) rafts, appear as tiny dots in the landscape.
