I saw this on Reddit and don't have any further details, thought it was still worthy of sharing.

It's a shame more of the Green River Gorge isn't public. I explored that area a year or so ago and was struck but how beautiful it was being so close to major Puget Sound cities, but there are a lot of access areas that don't make it seem very friendly...old rutted private parking lots.. a private trail that is kind of fenced off etc.

The Green River Gorge Resort is a pretty sketchy and weird place but I love taking visitors there to go swimming.

Granted, it's an old, grainy photo. But that does NOT look like the Green River gorge. First, the geology of the GRG is sandstone, and the rounded mossy rocks in the image do not appear to be sandstone. Second, that distant slope in the photo appears to have way more relief than you find in the GRG. Max relief in the GRG river-to-rim is no more than about 400', usually less.

It's probably above Palmer, which historically was also the Green River Gorge.
