One hundred fifty years ago, John Wesley Powell left Green River, Wyoming to begin an expedition to explore the Green and Colorado Rivers. On this journey, in May 1869, when he was awed by the sight of the red rock bluffs ablaze In color from the sun, Powell named the area Flaming Gorge. How satisfying it is to see that some things haven’t changed. The sunrise still turns the tops of the cliffs fiery red.
