“June is a great time to visit Sweetwater County and to escape the heat that typically has its grip on other areas of the country this time of year,” said Jenissa Bartlett, executive director of Sweetwater Travel & Tourism. “We hope lots of people will come to enjoy Flaming Gorge Days, as well as all of the other activities Sweetwater County has to offer — like hiking, biking, fishing, camping, kayaking, wildlife viewing, four-wheeling and more.”
