We made it to the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area today, a site we had wanted to visit for years, but it was always too far out of the way. Yeah! It was a tough drive...one road sign said, "Next 4 Miles - 10 switchbacks and 5% to 8% upward grade". That was a rather slow drive for us!
The Flaming Gorge Red Canyon overlook provided an awesome view of the Green River flowing through the red, brown, and green-colored canyon walls (cliffs)...a few photos are attached. We are glad we made the "out-of-the-way" drive. We are now in Wyoming enroute to South Dakota.
