We powered through Capitol Reef NP since we were a little short on time but it is amazing!
We met an amazing photographer Charlotte Kwong who is travelling to create a photobook of US National Parks. We’re now following her on Instagram; her photos are in another league!
We had a busy morning doing a few hikes including up to Hickman Bridge and along the Grand Wash.
From there we spent the afternoon driving the Scenic Drive and what a name for it! These photos are from our afternoon:
As we left Capitol Reef National Park we headed east along the UT-24 Highway towards Moab we had an amazing drive, probably the best of our trip. With such bizarre landscapes it would make the perfect set for a Star Wars movie. In fact, the Mars Desert Research Station is along this road. Apparently it was also perfect for dirt bike riding!
This is for your Mike Griffin…
