Our September visit was perfect. Lots of fall colors. Not many people. Amazing canyon, especially at the Red Canyon overlook. Many of the campgrounds were closed however.

This is a small spot on the map, but the scenic drive and the canyon views are well worth the effort. The drive is not as long as Beartooth Pass, but the views are fantastic. Take the time to drive out to the overlook.

It was beautiful but as we traversed the Sheep Creek Geological Loop we hit a rock which caused so much damage the car needed new engine. We had to get towed to Vernal where we were stranded for 3 days.

Th Flaming Gorge tour/visit was fine apart from the fact that the lifts/elevators are broken (until Nov 18) and as result you can't get down the base of the dam. The tour therefore is limited to the top of the dam. Never the less the...More

I can't offer any off-roading information, as we didn't do any - we stayed on the main roads on which we did receive cell service.
