I’m always looking for new and beautiful places to explore around the United States! A lot of the time I will just zoom in on my apple maps on a green area or a body of water, and then research whatever names are posted in that area! That’s how I found the Flaming Gorge.
I had just drove thru Colorado, I went to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and some other places, and wanted to find a spot to swim.
I pulled off the highway at Sheep Creek Bay, which is park of the Flaming Gorge.
There was a big parking lot and a boat launch! Parking was free for cars, but it did cost money to launch your boat, I’m not sure how much.
This place was incredible! The water is a bright blue and it’s surrounded by the red canton all around. The contrast makes it even more breathtaking.
I put Charles’s leash on and we headed for the lake. It was a short walk. I found him a nice shaded spot under a tree. He watched me swim and looked at me like I was a psycho lol.
I took a little nature bath and used some nature-safe suds! The water was super refreshing! I stayed in it for over an out and soaking in the views surrounding me!
