Last weekend was Fall Break for the kids, so we spent a few days exploring Capitol Reef, Utah’s only secret National Park, with some of the best hiking around. Every time we’ve been here before, it was passing thru quickly, so this time we stayed three days and explored. I think you could spend two weeks here and do great hike every day. It’s also a nice break from some of the more crowded parks; on both hiking days we went hours and hours without seeing anyone else. This, on two of the best hikes in the park, on the busiest weekend of the year! Can’t wait to go back!
Day 1: Sulphur Creek
Day 2: Sheets Gulch
Day 3: Fruita
We checked out the pioneer house, children’s museum, took a lot of pictures and ate pie. My son is in a photography class and was working on an assignment, he has lots of great pictures to sort thru.
The snake presentation was really good.
