Working my to the northwest, the next stop for me was Capitol Reef. Native Americans called this home long before Europeans saw it.
For two days, I too called this home.
My first day here was beneath grey skies. The sun sneaked out on the afternoon of the second day, so I headed out. I found the Capitol Dome…
Further west, the views were expansive.
This place is full of trails; it was frustrating to not be able to hike them. Still, there is a road, called Scenic Drive, that gives a nice experience.
I visited Monument Valley in 2010, and decided it was time to return. My buddy Jim jokingly urged me to get a sunrise shot, knowing that I tend to sleep in. Well, usually…
While sunrise was ok, the late day colors on the rock really do it for me.
Of course, given the chance, I put myself in the photo.
