I got home last night after another great Utah trip. The weather started off a little cool (it dropped down below freezing the second night) and we had quite a bit of wind during the week, but other than that the weather was great and it was much better than the cool, rainy weather last year. We drove about 1600 miles total and hiked every day. One of the trails I did a section of a couple years ago and another I had done many years ago, but I think that the rest were all new to me. I got to tour the Cathedral Valley area of Capitol Reef National Park, which I’ve wanted to see for many years but never could before because I don’t have a 4WD vehicle. And splitting the cost three ways was great- I think that my total cost for 10 days was right around $300!
Here’s a pic of Tom, Dan & I at Cedar Breaks National Monument- a park that I’ve driven by many times but never visited before because it’s so high (about 10,500’) that the road is almost always closed when I’m in the area. It was still basically winter up there but at least I finally made it to the park a couple days ago as we started our return trip to Denver.
Postcards got mailed from a small town in the middle of nowhere on Thursday so I doubt if many (if any) of you have received them yet, but they should start trickling in this week :)
