Last week board members and staff of the Sweetwater County Historical Museum, with the help of staff of the Uintah County Heritage Museum, moved a boat to Sweetwater County for a special exhibit that is about to open. The exhibit is actually a dual commemoration. One is the 60th anniversary of Flaming Gorge Dam going into operation. It is also a celebration of river guide and outfitter A.K. Reynolds. A.K. and his wife Ellen operated a river-running service in the years before Flaming Gorge Dam was complete. The boat at the exhibit is a vintage 17 foot hand-built wooden boat that is on loan from the Uintah County Heritage Museum. It will also feature photos from his river trips, photos of the construction and dedication of Flaming Gorge Dam, and continuous showing of the film “Face Your Danger – The Story of A.K. Reynolds & the Cataract Boat”. The exhibit will open on September 27th.
