The Yampa River of northwest Colorado is considered the last major free flowing-river in the seven state Colorado River Basin. It cascades for 249 miles from high in the Rocky Mountains near Steamboat Springs and descends over 6,000 ft. from alpine tundra to parched desert. Bisecting local, state, and national parks, and at times enclosed in a 2,500 ft. deep canyon, it morphs from a cold trout stream to a warm water haven for endangered fish, evolving from placid meanders into famous whitewater rapids.
Join Colorado nature photographer John Fielder as he photographs his way down the entire length of the river from the Yampa’s headwaters in the Flat Tops Wilderness at 11,500 ft. to its confluence with the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument. Fielder’s sublime images of tundra wildflowers, eagles and elk, and the tributaries and canyons of the Yampa will allow you to feel like you are rowing along with the author!
