Transcript for The Colorado, segment 08 of 10
Down from upper Utah, down from the western slopes of the Continental Divide, the Green River from Utah joins forces with the Colorado. From this confluence, this meeting of waters, the Green merges with the Colorado, becoming one river.

Closer now to its origin, many tributaries, such as the powerful Gunnison, add their strength, carving great crevasses, splitting their way through the rugged Rockies.
