Green River Overview

Green River is just west of Rock Springs on western I 80. There are most services there. It was here at the Green River John Wesley Powell launched his two historoical boat trips down the Green River than Colorado River and Grand Canyon that were blank areas on the map till Powell filled in the details on the map.
Powell lost an arm in the Civil War and still had the courage to take on the very dangerous and unknown rivers with unknown bad rapids while taking very careful notes that mapped both rivers.
