(nr Green River UT)
Spent a few days camped next to the Green River in Utah. I rarely stay at a pay campground; but, this one was special enough to spend a few days. It was about ten miles from town past ranches and farms.
Lower Gray Canyon-Swasey Beach CG, a small BLM campground, was at the end of a paved road, and right on the edge of the river, which was full from recent rains and was roaring past with lots of rapids. What a delightful sight to see!
Located next to the colorful Book Cliffs, and surrounded by mesas, buttes, and lots of green shrubbery and trees it was a visually exciting scene. There was also a small beach, and plenty of rocks along the riverbank.
It was a chance to work on the many photos recently taken, and to write-up some blog posts. I was also planning my route and what attractions to see along the way. A hike up the gravel road, beyond the campground, found a couple of free boondock camps next to the river. Without the recent rain, they would have been a good choice.
