Flaming Gorge ReservoirFlaming Gorge Reservoir was created in 1962 with the completion of the Flaming Gorge dam on the Green River. The dam was created to provide water storage and hydroelectricity. The resulting lake is 91 miles long with 350 miles of shoreline. The Utah section of the lake winds through colorful, narrow canyons; the Wyoming portion is wider and surrounded by high sagebrush deserts. The lake is managed by the National Forest Service as part of the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area.

Manila is a small town nestled against the hills on the north slopes of Lucerne Valley, a remote area tucked between the northern reach of the Uinta Mountains and the Wyoming border in Daggett County, Utah.
