Description

The Dirty Devil River is an 80-mile-long tributary of the Colorado River. It flows through southern Utah from the confluence of the Fremont River and Muddy Creek before emptying into the Colorado River at Lake Powell. Here it is meandering around Gibex Point, past Sam's Mesa on it's way toward The Big Ridge.
