Green River Wyoming is located in the south west corner of the state. If you have driven I-80 across the state and passed through twin tunnels, you have passed by a wonderful town! Nestled in between gorgeous rock formations with the Green River running through the heart of the town it is a oasis in the "High Desert Country."
The River has been the drawing point for early settlers and has served as a transportation hub for the Overland Trail, Cherokee Trail, Lincoln Highway, Union Pacific Transcontinental Railroad, and now Interstate 80. John Wesley Powell was attracted to the towns proximity to the railroad and river and began his two river expeditions from "Expedition Island". The second trip he discovered the Grand Canyon. Thomas Moran, early western artist, painted several renderings of the cliffs just west of town. Tollgate and the Palisades are sometimes misnamed as the "Cliffs along the Colorado."
