Green River Under Threat from Colorado Developer
Last week I posted around 30 images from a photo shoot out on the Green River, just over the Colorado state line in Utah. The Sportsmen’s Conservation Project hired me to document the A, B, and C sections of this river by floating for three days and camping for two nights. It was an amazing trip in what has to be one of the most beautiful settings for a trout river in all of North America.
Unfortunately, the Green River is under serious threat from Aaron Million, a Colorado developer who wants “to take 81 billion gallons of water each year out of the Green River and Flaming Gorge, and pump it 560 miles to the Front Range of Colorado. That’s 250,000 acre-feet per year.”
