This beautiful lake is 80 miles long, would take you about 2 days straight to explore the entire perimeter if by boat and weather. It's a fabulous place for people who love camping in tents.
So the child in me asks, "Why is Flaming Gorge called flaming gorge?" Well, it dates back to 1869 when John Wesley Powell and his 9 men had decided to explore the Green and Colorado Rivers. After seeing the sun reflecting off the red rocks, they named it.
I want to see it for myself!
Location: 6 miles East of Manila, Utah on the Utah/Wyoming border.
What kind of magnificent camping spots have you been to?
