Green River, Utah

The city of Green River is located on the Green River, a major tributary of the Colorado River, in Emery County. After the completion of the Utah Division of the Denver and Rio Grande Western railroad, Green River became a fueling and watering spot for the railroad. To this day, Amtrak still provides passenger rail service on the California Zephyr from Chicago to Emeryville, California, with a stop at the Green River station. From 1940 to 1960, mining uranium was a major part of the city’s economy. The 2020 census indicates that Green River has a population of 847. Because the city is located along I-70, it serves as jumping off point to Arches National Park, Moab, Dead Horse Point State Park, and Canyon Lands National Park.

  1. nice stuff. Green River always feels like a modern-day ghost town. Those huge motels and truck stops on the outskirts of town are all that are there any more.

  2. Loved the photos and much respect for the process of film. Thanks for evoking the loneliness of place and transitory nature of human endeavor. Very well done.
