... the trees are now large arbor vitae, and the views are of the east side of the Flaming Gorge - lovely in the hot light of sunset.
Just south of the Flaming Gorge dam, I talk to a county sheriff, who recommends 'Firefighter Memorial Campground' for the night. A spacious, clean campground, my tent site gives me pretty views of the canyon and a nice sunset.

For not having a clue as to what trails to hike until the day we were flying to Grand Junction, I think I did a pretty good job of picking the crown jewels. We hit all three districts within Canyonlands National Park (Island in the Sky, Needles, and Maze)....we hiked ...
