Red Canyon Overlook
Last week I rambled through the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming, continuing down to northeast Utah. Time and weather joined forces to combat successfully against my camera-time, so I only got a few images from the trip. The terrain through much of that geography is really amazing, and going through the Wind River Canyon south of Thermopolis is always a treat. After traveling south through Rock Springs and crossing into Utah, the landscape provides visual delight, with rugged rock formations adjacent to Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Throughout this journey, there are many mountains, hills and bluffs displaying varying shades of red, from very pale pastel pinks to deep crimson reds. In the midst of the journey, near Lander, WY, I stopped along Red Canyon to try to get a representation that would do justice to the actual scene. I think I captured a couple angles well, yet it isn’t quite like being there!
