Green River Overlook -Winter Stars

This overlook view is from a 6000 feet elevation. It looks out across Soda Springs Basin towards the Green River. Seeing this viewpoint for the first time catches visitors by surprise. Those not accustomed to wide open spaces and great heights, this overlook view will live up to the term breathtaking experience. Here, the Green River is a tiny ribbon of water in one awe-inspiring canyon. An incomprehensible distance, the vista stretches out for a hundred miles to the horizon. A sandstone viewing area marks the canyon rim and signals where a 2200 foot drop-off begins to the river far below. Add the beauty of the dark southern Utah skies and the magic begins.
