A spring walk along the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam is always enjoyable.
Daisy likes to swim,
or watch Steve rig up for fishing. She loves it when the fish splash.
Steve likes to stalk trout,
or beam over the handsome brown trout he brings in. Daisy really, really wants to lick the fish before Steve releases it back into the river.
Others float downstream on driftboats.
And I just like to walk along the water, under the looming cliffs, and listen for the unique descending trill of the canyon wren. This area is known as Red Canyon. The rocks are Precambrian quartzite of the Uinta Mountain Group, estimated to be about 1 billion years old.
