OK, we discussed the amazing rivers of Colorado a few weeks ago. Now we are in Western Wyoming. These Rocky Mountains produce some spectacular rivers that also go in multiple directions. I caught those beautiful trout on the Green down in Utah a few weeks ago. The Green originates in the Wind River Range just south of Jackson Hole. The Green is the Green for 700 miles until the confluence with the Colorado in Canyonlands NP in Utah. You remember what happens to the Colorado?
Last week we were in the Grand Tetons. The Snake fronts the Tetons as it flows from Yellowstone NP. The Snake is the longest tributary (over 1,000 miles) of the Columbia River, the largest North American river, which flows to the Pacfic Ocean in Washington State.
Just a few miles from the source of the Snake is the source of the Yellowstone. The Yellowstone flows Northeast for about 700 miles before it becomes part of the Missouri joining the Arkansas flowing to the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. That Continental Divide again.
