Photo detail

Above is an aerial view of the Wyman Museum grounds. At the center is the ox bow pond that was formed when railroad engineers cut a new channel for the Yampa River in 1913. The ox bow is being dredged to a depth of 12 feet to accommodate rainbow trout that will be stocked by the Colorado Division of Wildlife later this year after excavation is complete.
