360° VR Panoramas of Yellowstone and Northern Wyoming
The Upper Green River
Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming

The Green River rises in the Wind River Range and forms the true source of the Colorado. A remote stretch with prime fishing is accessed by short gravel roads either side of the Warren Bridge, but the main access road leads up through ranchlands past Cora. Pavement ends at the national forest boundary but the road continues on deep into the mountains.

One of the subtle wonders of this area is Kendall Warm Spring, n rare fish habitat less than a thousand feet long, cut off from the Green River by a travertine waterfall. These warm waters are the only home on earth for a one-inch long species of dace.
