The Yampa River flows miles ( km) through northwestern Colorado in the United in the Rocky Mountains, it is a tributary of the Green River and a major part of the Colorado River system.

The Yampa is one of the few free-flowing rivers in the western United States, with only a few small dams and diversions. The name is derived from the Snake Mouth: Green River. The Yampa River of northwest Colorado is considered Geology of Cross Mountain last major free flowing-river in the seven state Colorado River Basin.

It cascades for miles from high in the Rocky Mountains near Steamboat Springs and descends over 6, ft. from alpine Colorado to parched desert.5/5(6). The Yampa River is the one major tributary in the Colorado River system that runs wild and free, straight to the heart of Dinosaur National Monument.

For three months a year (May-July), the Yampa River flows free with fresh, surging run-off from miles above—waters originating from the melting snows and glaciers of the world-famous Colorado /5(60). north of the Yampa River. book Cross Mountain Gorge is a fun run through a beautiful desert canyon in northeastern Colorado not far from Craig.

This run often attracts the attention of antsy Colorado and Utah boaters since it is one of the first decent sections in Colorado to start running in. Colorado’s Yampa River today is a delicately balanced bio-physical system that offers sustainable food and water for wildlife and humans alike.

Upon closer examination, the Yampa is the result of at least 30 million years of geological processes,years of biological evolution, 5, years of Native American utilization, and only   It was a time when Colorado was a peninsula off Pangea near the equator.

Fast forward to 68 million years ago, North America and Europe had split, and the area was laden with huge lakes and rivers. This was the start of the Rocky Mountains’ uplift.

Jump to 30 million years ago and Colorado had fully formed the Rocky and Uinta mountain ranges. Covers both the 43 miles of the Gates of Lodore to Split Mountain section of the Green River and the 46 miles on the Yampa River's Deerlodge Park put-in to its confluence with the Green.

Boaters on the Yampa float their final 25 miles on the Green River to the Split Mountain takeout. RiverMaps guidebooks are made by river runners for river : NRS. Drive this paved road north for about for miles to a parking lot on the right (east side of the road). This is at the Yampa River.

North Cross Mountain Trailhead From Maybell and High turn onto State Highway and follow it Northwest along the Yampa River.

After a short distance, pass through the tiny community of Sunbeam%(25). Madison Limestone (~ million years old): This is the gray, craggy layer that forms the big, sheer cliffs throughout much of Whirlpool Canyon, Jones Hole, in the Little Joe area in the Yampa, and in the middle section of Split was deposited in a deep ocean environment, in a seaway that stretched North-South across much of the continent.

Nokhu Crags is a rock formation and mountain summit in the Never Summer Mountains range of the Rocky Mountains of North name is derived from the Arapaho language, Neaha-no-xhu, meaning "Eagles Nest."foot (3, m) peak is located in State Forest State Park, miles ( km) south (bearing °) of Cameron Pass in Jackson County, Colorado.

Yampa River - Cross Mountain Canyon A Conservation Milestone at the Entrance of Colorado's Cross Mountain Canyon. InWRC purchased a acre ranch on Colorado's Yampa River, at the very entrance to Cross Mountain Canyon (foreground). Acquisition opened new public access to tens of thousands of acres of surrounding public land.

The areas discussed here include the Bighorn Basin in Wyoming and Montana, the Laramie Basin and part of the Sweetwater River Basin in Wyoming, the Yampa River Basin in Colorado, and the Uinta Basin in Utah (Fig.

Small parts of the Great Plains and Colorado Plateau physiographic provinces are included in this discussion. FIGURE —Yampa River where it emerges from its canyon through Cross Mountain, an uplift involving Paleozoic and Precambrian rocks.

The gorge is 1, feet deep, yet upstream from it the Yampa River valley is broad and open and 1, feet lower than the top of Cross Mountain. The majestic Uinta Mountains extend miles from Kamas, Utah, eastward to Cross Mountain, Colorado. The range is a collection of mountains and plateaus that includes the high western peaks, lower eastern peaks, Diamond Mountain Plateau, Split Mountain, Blue Mountain Plateau, Yampa Plateau, and Douglas Mountain.

With amazing rivers and hikes, adventure, solitude, diverse wildlife, world-class geology, fascinating human history, oh, and dinosaur fossils, this place is not to be missed. The mile long Yampa River in Dinosaur National Monument sources from Steamboat Springs, and is the last large free-flowing tributary of the Colorado River System.The Yampa is one of the West’s last wild rivers, with no major reservoirs blocking its path from the highlands of northwestern Colorado to its confluence with the Green River near the Utah border.

The Yampa sees a natural spike of high water when mountain snow is melting in the spring and early summer, then recedes to a much more modest flow.Photograph of the Colorado River at The Loop. Cross-valley profile of the Green and Colorado River Canyons.
