Colorado; river, one of the great rivers of the continent. It takes its source in two main branches-Green River, which heads in the Wind River Mountains of Wyoming, and Grand River, which heads in Middle Park, Colorado. The former, after traversing Green River Basin, cuts a gorge through the Uinta Range, a great east and west anticlinal uplift. Then it crosses successively three inclined plateaus, dipping north and cliffing on the south. Below the foot of the lower of these it is joined by Grand River, which has had equally as obstructed a course. The Colorado thenceforward traverses a series of canyons, which are successively deeper, produced by monoclinal folds and faults, until the Grand Canyon is reached. Here it canyons through a plateau 8,000 feet high, the gorge being 6,000 feet deep. It leaves this region by crossing a succession of folds and faults, here descending to the westward, and reaches the level of the country again at the mouth of the Grand Wash in Arizona. It receives many large branches, among them Yampa, White, Uinta, Price, Fremont, and San Juan rivers, in this part of its course. The length of Green River, from the head of Green River Basin to its junction with Grand River, is 720 miles; that of Grand River is 348 miles, and that of the Colorado, from the junction of the Grand and Green to its mouth, is 1,080 miles.
