Fremont Canyon

LOOKING Closer

The camera at Fremont Canyon is just downstream from Pathfinder Dam. It was through this canyon that explorer John Charles Fremont attempted to run the river in a wooden boat in 1842 and was capsized in the rapids downstream, losing his valuable surveying instruments. Today under “normal conditions” the North Platte River enters the canyon through the needle valve outlet of Pathfinder Dam and also farther downstream at a power plant connected to the reservoir through a three mile long tunnel.
