The Colorado River (Spanish: Río Colorado) is one of the principal rivers (along with the Rio Grande) in the Southwestern United States and northern 1,mile-long (2, km) river drains an expansive, arid watershed that encompasses parts of seven U.S. states and two Mexican states. Starting in the central Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the river flows generally southwest across Mouth: Gulf of California. The Green River runs through Flaming Gorge in the northeast corner of Utah, proceeds through Dinosaur National Monument, winds through desert wilderness in east-central Utah and passes the town of Green River before merging with the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park. It has a lot to offer.
