Travels With Minnie: Surprises

Lots of excitement on the road Friday. Reg did a great job of remaining calm and confident as he towed us 280 miles in and out of mild snow flurries. Arriving at our campsite, we quickly set up, climbed inside and blasted the heater as we watched the snowfall kick it up a notch. The sun returned at daybreak, highlighting the beautiful backdrop we’ll enjoy the the next few days.

Today’s outing found us climbing up one of the more popular trails Capitol Reef National Park offers. It was Saturday (which we’d forgotten) and a free entry day (which we didn’t know about). We’ve been a little spoiled when it comes to share the trail with so many other folks, but the clumps of walkers eventually spread out and once we reached the top we realized it was all worth it.

We watched the group to the left of the arch practice their rappelling skills as, one by one, they dropped out of sight. A guide explained there was a series of smaller arches they would rappel down before hiking out from below. Keeping both feet on the ground, we reversed our steps back to the trailhead.
