Travels With Minnie: Navaho Knobs

While Minnie remained at our campsite, Reg and I set off for a full day of hiking.

The Navaho Knobs Trail is the longest trail in Capitol Reef National Park. The 9.4 mile round trip climbs (relentlessly) about 2,000 feet to an elevation of nearly 7,000 feet. This was no small day hike for us, but we figured we could always turn around if the going got tough.

It took us 2 hours to reach this spot where we finally saw The Knobs.

An hour later (at least) we finally reached the base of The Knobs. The trail led us around to the right where we scrambled up the rocks, as far as we dared, to take in the view.

While many photograph themselves perched atop a Knob, standing above the pile of rubble was good enough for us!
