Capitol Reef

After Goblin Valley, we piled back into our cars and drove for another hour or so to Capitol Reef. I admit that I've only ever seen the waistband of the park -- there are hikes and all kinds of interesting places above and below, but they will have to wait for another trip. Even this tiny stretch of the park has beautiful red rock cliffs, petroglyphs, hikes, pioneer orchards and buildings.

Happy to be out of the car again
Maddie and Kate, ready for spring
The minivan brigade at the petroglyphs
The teacher's desk in the schoolhouse. Isn't that kid in the window perfect?
This is why I love Capitol Reef
Peach orchards and red rocks. Incredible.
