Dinosaur National Monument

Bill Mitchem took this photo of Steamboat Rock in Echo Park in Dinosaur National Monument in 2006. He wrote of the area: "There is far more to see and do than most people realize -- this is truly a 'hidden gem.' Though known primarily for the fossil quarry in the Utah portion of the monument, other treasures are rock art, river rafting, hiking, magnificent canyons, abundant wildlife and much more. Perhaps best of all is the 'center of the universe,' Echo Park and striking Steamboat Rock, at the confluence of the Yampa and Green rivers. John Wesley Powell thought this was a special place when he camped here in 1869 and I believe you and your viewers will, too. ... Steamboat Rock is a rock fin 750 to 1000 feet high, 1 mile long and nearly surrounded by the Green River."
