Green River, UT, USA
GaslessOur Utah guidebooks made Green River sound like a must-see adventure tourist destination between Monument Valley and Salt Lake City. Maybe it's because we were visiting in early November, but we were disappointed when we arrived for our one-night stay only to discover a sleepy little truck-stop town off the highway with very few places left open for business.
With little to do and impending snowy weather, we decided to make the most out of our afternoon with a photo expedition, scouring the area for unlikely art subjects which we found in the town's retro signage and vacant store fronts. My favorite find was a striking blue solitary sign that loomed on the outskirts of town next to a torn-down gas station.
