Scenic distraction

We were getting a bit stir crazy working in the hotel so it was time for a few hours of touring.  
Flaming Gorge bound.

The terrain changes so quickly in these parts.  Flat high desert gives way to rocky formations filled with reds, greens, and yellows.  In the distance Wasach mountains meet the low clouds.

We trekked a wide circle from Rock Springs to Flaming Gorge on 191 and back to Green River.  The Dam at Flaming Gorge is huge with over 1 million tons of concrete.  It has created a beautiful reservoir with colorful islands.

A highlight for both of us was to see antelope.
We also saw turkey and mule deer.

This evening I packed the batteries in the truck and we'll be going underground tomorrow.

I'll collect images for you.
