    Just downstream are definitive Colorado River gravels that came from Grand Canyon and they are preserved beneath the Sandy Point basalt, dated at million years. Taken together the evidence suggests that the river here is between and million years old and geologists have often conflated the age of the river as the age of the canyon. The Colorado River is the primary river of the American Southwest, draining somewhere in the vicinity of , square miles of land, from the states of Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California. The Green River is the primary tributary of the Colorado River, and until the Colorado River did not technically begin.
