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. Join Colorado nature photographer John Fielder and educator/river rat Patrick Tierney as they photograph and write their 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. Between Fielder's sublime images of tundra wildflowers, eagles and elk, and the tributaries and canyons of the Yampa, and Tierney's discourse about the Yampa's human, natural, and political history, you will feel like you are rowing along with the authors
