Capitol Reef: an evening’s introduction
On the hectic first day of our Utah vacation, we managed to exit the Dallas metromess (the hardest part, considering the construction btwn. our home and DFW Airport), fly to Grand Junction, rent a car (Mazda CX-5), drive to Torrey, check into our motel (Broken Spur Inn – nice joint!), and reconnoiter Capitol Reef before sundown.
Here are a few images from that first evening’s drive-through along the main park road – with a quick detour into Grand Wash, where we would undertake a hike on the morrow.
