"I wish I had better words to describe the Flaming Gorge near Rock Springs, Wyoming. I am not sure the words have been invented yet. It is a must see."

"The City of Green River is to be applauded for the Expedition Island Park. There is so much history to read in the park, it's a quiet and peaceful place to sit by the river, there is amazing river access and you can fish right there."

"We stopped at the Wild Horse Corrals on the edge of Rock Springs before traveling the Wild Horse Scenic Loop...Driving the Scenic Loop, we saw a lot of horses, antelope and even a couple of sheep. You can drive right up to Pilot Butte! "

"What an amazing place! Nestled in the middle of nowhere along the Green River, the wildlife viewing [at Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge] was spectacular and the remoteness amazing. I will be back, I promise!"
