One portion of Flaming Gorge NRA is the Sheep Rock Geological Loop. I highly recommend everyone drive the loop. Besides being a pretty drive, you have the chance to see bighorn sheep and interesting rock formations.

I got up and went to church with Sarah, Nathan, and their 3 boys
About 2pm we packed up, said goodbyes, and headed to Flaming Gorge NRA. It was a pretty drive.
Day 45 - Flaming Gorge NRA - August 4, 2008 - Monday
Stopped at the Visitor Center. Found hiking trails. Did part of the Rim Trail. Nice views of the gorge. Then we drove the Sheep Creek Canyon Geological Loop. We saw very interesting rock formations and layers, and a few bighorn sheep. First time for the sheep!
Then we drove on to the dam. Hoping to take a tour, but just missed it.
Had a campfire. Nice to have one again, it has been a while. Hooray for wood left at the campsite by previous occupants!
