On our escape from the miserable weather in Seattle in 2010, we journeyed from Bryce Canyon National Park to Capitol Reef National Park. Prior to this trip to Utah, I’d never heard of Capitol Reef National Park. When we looked at the map, we realized that Capitol Reef was more or less between Bryce and Arches National Park which we really wanted to see.
Little did we know that we were in for a treat of many climates. While it was hot and dry during our hiking through Bryce Canyon, the trip to Capitol Reef was over several mountains where we had to fight thunderstorms, rainbows and open range cattle blocking the road. All in all an incredibly diverse and beautiful landscape.
Capitol Reef is not a heavily visited national park but a beauty and a joy and an anomaly all at the same time. Enjoy the photos of this end of day journey.
