Welcome to the High Desert Chapter Website
As the chapter name indicates, this is an area of the high plains where the low amount of annual rainfall creates a desert-like area. Green River is located in Sweetwater County where elevations are around 6,000 feet.
The Continental Divide runs through this county with waters from the Green River flowing west, while the Sweetwater River flows east. Ranching, recreation, mining and energy production spawn growth in the area.
