We arrived at the forest service cg, got set up, and headed straight to Flaming Gorge Dam (above), so named by John Powell because the sun on the rocks looked to him as if they were on flame. He was the first here, so he got the honor of naming it! We drove across the dam for these two photos.
And the lake was pretty, but we got more trees shown here than lake.
We are happy to be leaving Utah today, heading next door to Wyoming and some of our favorite places. Tonight we’ll stay in a FHU cg so that laundry can get done, but then we’ll return to the forest service campgrounds. Amy/Jason, we are going back to that one in Moran Junction where we stayed in ‘07. Wish y’all were here!
The weather is fantastic. And no rain on us today for a change. And no sign of Theodore, Simon OR Alvin!
Life is short…make fun of it! We sure are…
