"Southwest Adventure '02 ~ Flaming Gorge" Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area Travelogue by dacrites

Flaming Gorge National Recreational Area....results of the August '02 fire on Rt. 191, which was closed due to the wild fire just a few days before I left on vacation. Was worried I'd have to change my route...which would have taken me a long ways out of the way. Thankfully they got the fire under control and reopened the highway. Could see many, many acres that were burned, and there was still areas burning when I went through.

Even the rocks were burned, as well as areas across the road that were scorched. There was still some smoke from areas that were still burning when I went through.

Wyoming badlands. I believe I took this photo somewhere between Flaming Gorge National Recreational Area and Green River, WY. Brings back memories of my trip to the Badlands of South Dakota!
