We made little road trip to Utah & Colorado. A 5 hour drive from Las Vegas brought us to Capitol Reef National Park. We started with a 3 mile loop at Chimney rock. It had rained a lot, so that pretty red sand accumulated 2 inches on our boots. We drove down Capitol Gorge to the end of the pavement...the gravel road was not appropriate for a little rental car. We wandered around Grand wash a while, then hiked up to Hickman Bridge.
We had just enough day left to spend a couple hours at Goblin Valley before sunset.
After a very full day we drove to Moab for the next adventure.
