Steamboat Rock in the Evening
Steamboat Rock, across the Green River from Echo Park in Dinosaur National Monument. Imaged in late afternoon, as the light was leaving the canyons.
The view is from the start of the Mitten Park Trail. It's about a 120-degree pano, and compresses the open space of the site. The Green does flow around Steamboat Rock, but this side of the rock is more "flat," as is the spot where we're standing.
Both Echo Park and Steamboat Rock were named by Major John Wesley Powell's 1869 expedition down the Green and Colorado Rivers, which is more famous for being the first to pass through the Grand Canyon. They were not the first through the Green.
