Just like Chevy Chase on his visit to Wally World- we missed the Flaming Gorge Dam Visitor Centre being opened and seeing more of the dam today, by 2 days. I guess the Visitor Centre closed for the season October 16th so the walkway over the dam was closed.
Located just outside of Dutch John the Dam is quite the site to behold. Free admission and plenty of parking for viewing.
Towering 502 feet above the Green River. and completed in 1964, the Flaming Gorge Dam was built to provide water storage and hydroelectric power. The Dam is managed by the US Bureau of Reclamation and is the major hydroelectric dam along the Green River system.
