Explorers, are we? Well, maybe so, after having spent two nights camped along the small creek referenced in the Powell quote, above.
|Ready for Powell's expedition? The intrepid explorers—|
Tim and Rita—pose near Ely Creek Campground.

You can't see the pesky Box Elder bugs but they're there, invading our site.
|Petroglyphs along the Jones Hole trail. On our hike to The Green River|
we saw a group of bighorn sheep with young—but none
with antlers as big as this!
|View downriver on The Green. A fine place to camp, whether you|
were part of a 19th century expedition, or are a twenty-first
century river runner.
|John Wesley Powell enjoyed "a good supper of trout" and|

|This fat rainbow trout was luckier than the brown; it was released|
to swim another day in the clear waters of Jones Hole Creek.
|My pack is loaded and we're ready to leave|
our room with a view.
|Add your pair of feet to this scene; relax along|
lovely Jones Hole Creek after a day of exploration.

next couple hours casting for trout.
