Photo Essay: Gasless in Green River
Our Utah guidebook made Green River sound like a must-see, adventure destination between Monument Valley and Salt Lake City. Maybe it’s because we were visiting in early November, but when we arrived, all we discovered was a sleepy truck-stop town off highway I-70 with very few places left open for business.
With little to do and an impending snowfall, we decided to make the most out of our afternoon with a photo expedition scouring the town for its retro signs and vacant store fronts.
