Capitol Reef (part 2)

Diana always drives us on the days when we take the adventurous roads.  So once again, her truck got dirty taking us down Grand Wash Road to the Grand Wash trail.

Looking through a window near the beginning of the trail.

 It's fascinating how the water creates swirls and holes in the sides of the wash.

The trail is 2.2 miles from Grand Wash Road to a parking area on the main road through the park and is pretty open on both ends.

But in the middle, it goes through the Narrows, where the walls close in and tower above.

We went almost to the other end before turning around, remembering to look down as well as up.

On our way back home, we made a stop for a short hike to Sunset Point where we had great views of the Goosenecks.

It wasn't sunset, but still pretty spectacular.

And I snapped another picture of Chimney Rock out the truck window as we drove by.


  1. I'm jealous of all the fun you get to enjoy with your sister...
    It's wonderful!! That top photo is amazing!! Good job on that.

  2. Is (was) it cold at Capital Reef? You look kind of bundled up.
