The U.S. Geological Survey's Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC) collects aerial photography of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS) floodplain on a regular basis. These data are used to support the Center's long-term goals of understanding the UMRS and developing useful products for the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP). In 2000, 1:16,000-scale true color aerial photos were collected on the Mississippi River from Cairo, IL to Minneapolis, MN and the on Illinois River from its confluence with the Mississippi near Grafton, IL to Lake Michigan/Chicago, IL. The photos were collected using a 60% stereo overlap between photos in the same flight line and a 30% overlap between flight lines....

The Flaming Gorge, a view on Green River, very near the location where Major Powell launched his expeditions for the Colorado River. View at the mouth of Henrys Fork, of great beauty, and which derives its principal charm from the vivid coloring. The waters of the river are of the purest emerald, with banks and sand bars of glistening white. The perpendicular bluff to the right is nearly 1,500 feet above the level of the river, and of a bright red and yellow. When entrance or gateway to the still greater wonders and grandeurs of the famous Red Canyon, that cuts its way to a depth of 3,000 feet between this point and its entrance into Browns Hole. Man and horse for scale. Daggett County, Utah. 1870.

Broad, flat masses of rock, lie at the base of the bluff, 15 or 20 feet square, with the surface covered with these peculiar markings. Wyoming. 1870.
