Capital Reef National Park and Escalante Staircase
The drive to Capital Reef National Park was so deserted and quiet. The desert is a peaceful place. We stopped at this roadside view to take in the mountains and stretch our legs. We drove into Capital Reef National Park and saw this mountain first (the picture bellow), It looked like a Hershey's kiss. We also stopped in at the Fruita Schoolhouse, as old school house, a small house that early pioneers lived in, and a tiny waterfall.
This picture to the left is of the canyon you drive through.
