We took Hwy 191 from Vernal, UT north to the Flaming Gorge NRA and went west on Hwy 44 to Hwy 530 to Green River, WY. traveling the west side of the gorge. The route was filled with spectacular views, a great road and a very interesting tour of the Flaming Gorge Dam. The dam was started in 1958 and finished in 1964 to provide hydroelectric power to the area. President John F. Kennedy started the first generator on Sep 27, 1963.
