Capitol Reef National Park

This little National Park has managed to elude us over the last 20 years. We arrived late to the campground as we made the decision to spend most of the day enjoying the amazing scenery of Grand Staircaseā€“Escalante National Monument. The road from Escalante to Boulder was particular special, as was the Singing Canyon. The late arrival meant we setup camp and stayed inside to escape the cold weather. Starlink struggled a little under the trees, but managed intermittent Internet.

We stayed two nights and used the time to fix a partially clogged water tap, a job which ended up taking 2 hours. We met a couple from Europe and exchanged stories, which was very pleasant. And in the afternoon we went walking in the Canyons.

Cohab Canyon. Short walk from the Campground. Lovely Canyon.
Grand Wash. Impressive towering walls.
Another view of the Grand Wash
Yet another view of the Grand Wash. Yes, I was impressed.
Frying Pan. Getting up high was nice views of the National Park.
The cliffs above the Campground.
Fruita Campground. Looking empty, but still impossible to get a spot. We got one at the last minute.
The Fruit Trees of Fruita, just starting to blossom.
The next morning Caroline went for a walk down the Grand Wash.
