Sweetwater County is the starting point for great adventures. It's where John Wesley Powell launched an expedition that led him to the Grand Canyon. Today it's where wild horses run across the horizon as the sun sets and ATV riders go full throttle up massive sand dunes. Located in the high desert, Sweetwater County offers high adventure. From kayaking on the Green River to hunting for fossils at what was Lake Gosiute, to enjoying the Flaming Gorge. The Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, commonly known as "Gorge Country," offers spectacularly beautiful and geographically diverse views that include high desert, canyon and forest lands. The opportunities for outdoor adventures in Sweetwater County are as vast as the views.
