Like a duck to water






About an hour's drive north of Vernal there is a place called Red Canyon. It overlooks Flaming Gorge and is quite spectacular. Before you arrive at the canyon, there is a lodge with a small lake that is home to lots of well fed ducks. We went up there over the weekend for lunch and enjoyed a brief watery interlude.

For more aquatic adventures check out Watery Wednesday.
