Our next stop was Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area and flaming it is!
If I had a boat, this is where I would take it. When at capacity, the reservoir is 91 miles long, with gorgeous cliffs and interesting inlets. Here's the topo map from the visitor center at the dam.
The first picture was taken from the Red Canyon overlook. Here's the view in the opposite direction.
You need to watch your step at the overlook.
Then we stopped at the Sheep Creek Overlook for more 180 degree views. Here's the reservoir side.
And perhaps even prettier is Sheep Creek Canyon.
We took the Sheep Creek Canyon loop to see even more cool rock formations. Here's Tower Rock.
I guess you know by now that I really like rocks and if they are colorful and/or swirly, that's even better.
We ended the day by stopping at Moose Lake. We didn't see any moose, but did see something pretty special. An osprey dove right in front of us and snatched his dinner out of the lake. Here's my perfect shot of the osprey and fish.
