Various photos of this dark ‘n lovely creature inside Capitol Reef Nat’l Park. I had heat exhaustion illness and a high-elevation burn because I’m German & pathetically pale.
Vic had a great time because he has melanin. 👦🏾 Capitol Reef is an unbelievable and surreal place. But heed my warning: GO IN THE FALL. 🍂

Back to happier times when I had heat exhaustion illness from the brutal summer sun in the Utah dessert...
...
The mountains peeking through in the background are the Henry Mountains, the last mapped mountain range on the map of the lower 48 US states. The range is only about 30 miles long. While there are hiking and biking trails, you won’t find any ski resorts or other amenities commonly constructed near popular and more touristy mountain ranges...
...
I snapped this photo on our way back to Moab, driving from Capitol Gorge Nat’l Park in south-central Utah. I HIGHLY recommend planning a trip to this off-the-beaten-path oasis in the desert. You can set up camp in Moab while visiting Canyonlands, Arches, & Dead Horse Point State Park. It’s a few hours away, and there aren’t many facilities on the way to Capitol Gorge or even inside the park. So pack PLENTY of water (the desert is brutal), be sure to bring plenty of salty snacks and protein, and leave with a full tank of gas.

The surprise at the end of Capitol Gorge, just beyond the park boundary: The remnants of an old abandoned car. #capitolgorge #capitolreefnationalpark #nationalpark #utah

#Roadtrip in de #USA (IV)... Water stroomt er niet meer; het is er nu stof happen. Maar rijden tussen de indrukwekkende rotswanden van Capitol Gorge geeft je toch ‘n beetje het gevoel alsof je onder water rijdt, heel cool! Rij maar even een stukje mee...

The Pioneer Register in Capitol Gorge in Capitol Reef National Park. The early pioneers engraved their names into the canyon walls in the late 19th century. #pioneerregister #capitolgorge #capitolreefnationalpark #nationalpark #usparksandmonuments #utah

This place!! Capitol Gorge @ Capitol Reef in Utah. Mind blowing! A quick throwback 1 minute clip and one of my favourite places in Utah that we visited. This place was also insanely HOT.

RV Trip day 14: Our 5-year anniversary! We spent it hiking 11 miles across three trails in #capitolreef: #capitolgorge, #cassidyarch, and #hickmanbridge. We found that heart already laid out on the Cassidy trail! Finished the day with toasted marshmallows. #nationalpark #nationalparks #findyourpark

We had a great 2 days in Capitol Reef National Park. Our campsite was amongst the old orchards of Fruita surrounded by the cliffs of the Waterpocket Fold. Some of the highlights were hiking the Chimney Rock Trail, Hickman Natural Bridge, Capitol Gorge and seeing some amazing petroglyphs in the rocks.

Explored Goblin Valley and Capitol Reef today-- we climbed the side of a cliff and it was absolutely exhilarating!

Capitol gorge road is definitely worthwhile at the end of the scenic drive. Adventure begins when the pavement ends and the dirt begins. #capitolreefnationalpark #fruita #roadtrip #utahinfocus #utahrocks #capitolgorge #capitolgorgeroad #scenicdrive #utah #utahphotographer #utahgram #utahisrad #utahisbeautiful #wowutah #werutah #utah #utahillustrated

It’s amazing how nature can make us feel so small. Nothing like standing next to towers of red rock!

The view from the Capitol Gorge Tank Trail. We didn't know how high up the trail was until we looked down. You can see my sister and my brother-in-law waving and standing next to the tree at the bottom. Even though they say it's an easy shady hike, we hiked during the midday, and this was definitely not a shady hike. Some parts of the trail were in open area and it got really hot. The climb was also quite hard, rocky and rugged. Since I was in good company, it was a fun hike although I got sick afterwards. 😋😅😄

Absolutely loved my day in Capitol Reef NP! I drove down the Scenic Drive to the end, then continued to the end of the 4WD extension Capitol Gorge Road, one of the coolest drives of my trip through the narrow twisty canyon. Then I continued down the Gorge on foot on the Capitol Gorge Trail, past the Pioneer Register to the Tanks. The Gorge Trail is flat easy walking through the narrowest part of the canyon, where the Mormon Pioneers left their signatures carved into the wall. The Tanks is "a short climb" according to the map (a 1/4 mile ~100 feet up), you can do some minor bouldering but it was easy to lose the trail on the rocks as it is only marked by rock cairns. Even though it is a small trail spur it took me as much time to climb and wander and search to find the tanks as it did to walk the mile there. So for anyone wondering what they look like, here's a pic of "The Tanks", naturally occurring waterpockets that play an important role in storing water for the desert critters during the dry spells between rains. #capitolreef #nationalpark #nps #utah #visitutah #explore #exploreutah #capitolreefnationalpark #southwest #usa #naturephotography #earth_shotz #earthpix #earth #nature #photography #landscape #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #landscape_lovers #waterpockets #thetanks #capitolgorge #trail #hiking #hikingadventures #hikingtrails #hiker
