Capitol Reef NP!
The weather is beautiful right now. Low 70's and sunny, unseasonably nice. We missed all of the fruit in the historic orchards of this park (park visitors are welcome to partake of the 2700 fruit trees) but other than that, we feel we hit this one just right. We took advantage of the extremely clean and well-cared for RV park near Fruita Homestead, only $20/night. There are no hookups, but as I say over and over, we don't need them at all. There is a dump station and fresh water access so we will be able to "refresh ourselves" before moving on to the next stop, which will be Canyonlands National Park.
|Hiking Cohab Canyon.|
Yes, Dad ran like a thief
after he put the camera on a tripod.
It was quite eery to be so alone. Not another person did we see on the entire hike, and we could almost feel wild life eyes upon us. It was a little disconcerting to see fresh tracks where we were walking-is that a coyote or a mountain lion??-we were unarmed (unusual for us). A scary thought, but we would be completely helpless if something of that nature happened.
