Aerial videos and images: Yampa River flight, May 2021

This page features aerial video footage and still images of the Yampa River and its watershed.

The Yampa, a major tributary of the Colorado River, is largely free-flowing along its 250-mile route in Northwest Colorado.

In Dinosaur National Monument, the Yampa meets the Green River in Echo Park.

This flight followed the Yampa upstream, passing by Steamboat Springs, Stagecoach Reservoir and the Flat Tops Wilderness, which is also the source for the White River.

This footage was captured during a LightHawk flight using a mounted GoPro camera. The still images are exported frames from the video.
