Flaming Gorge Reservoir

Flaming Gorge is a mecca for fishermen, boaters, rafters, drift boats and anyone who enjoys the beauty of the land. It is the largest reservoir in Wyoming and is on the Green River.

Flaming Gorge was named by John Wesley Powell on his 1869 expedition down the Green and Colorado rivers for the "brilliant, flaming red of its rocks.

Can you see the bridge?

How about if I crop it for you.

This is the bridge when you get down to the bottom of the gorge.

You drive across the top of the dam.

The clouds also added to the beauty of our surroundings.

The drive up from Utah may have been challenging but so worth it. However, if you want to enjoy Flaming Gorge without the 20 mph curves, come south into the Gorge from Rock Springs, WY.  The road is still curving and up and down, but nothing like the Utah road.

It’s amazing how far behind you get when you don’t have internet for a couple of days. We are actually in Cody, WY for the night. I’m going to try and get caught up in the next day or so.

  3. Thanks for the data to help us all decide whether to approach from the north or south. That's good data to have.

    And Toni is right; we'll be here whenever you post. Since we aren't traveling with you it doesn't matter which day is which. :)

  5. Looks like some pretty country. We always get to WY in the fall and it's pretty brown.
