The quickest way to a Richie’s heart may be through Capitol Reef.
From autumn 2017. Bonus: spot the highway in the photo.

Rest isn’t working less, but being in the presence of God - Great reminder from today’s sermon

At first I thought I was on another rocky planet. Such unique epic terrain and landscape blew my mind away.

I was going back through a few of my images from Spring of 2017, and came across this one of the Gifford Homestead in Capitol Reef National Park. In the past, I have posted a few pictures of the orchards and trails surrounding this homestead. I like the contrast of the natural rock walls in the background and the human irrigated field in the foreground. I also am impressed by the amount of work that had to have been put into building the rock fence on the hill starting to the right of the house and going off the edge of the left of the image. I know they used the materials available, but those rocks are heavy, and there are so many of them…

CAPITOL FUCKING REEF! This place Blew My Mind. Very underrated. The only national park that allows you to eat the fruit that's grown on property. This is an orchard in the middle of the desert!!! .

Photos to follow in the weeks up ahead, been unplugged from the Matrix for over a week. But finally got a connection when I pass through a town to restock and clean up.

After driving 30 beautiful miles along the Burr Trail, we entered Capitol Reef NP and the switchbacks that would take us down to Strike Valley and to The Waterpocket Fold. If you look close you can see the road toward the middle of the photo. What you don’t see are the intense switchbacks on the left and the right that lead down to that road, the Notom-Bullfrog Road. #capitolreef #nationalpark #capitolreefnationalpark #capitolreefnp #nps #nationalparkservice #utah #utahunique #utahisrad #utahisbeautiful #incredibleutah #ig_utah #burrtrail #notombullfrogroad #northamerica #ig_unitedstates #igers #ig_exquisite #ig_shotz #ig_captures #ig_shutterbugs #ig_unitedstates_ #redrock #waterpocketfold #seeyourcountry #explore #

While at this ridiculously cool spot at dusk last spring I had the brilliant idea that it might be a good idea to camp in the bottom of this canyon. Long story short, spent an hour thrashing around in poison ivy thinking it would open up and then ended up climbing back up here in the dark. Glorious.

This is the Waterpocket Fold in the southern part of Capitol Reef National Park. It runs about 100 miles (north/south) and we drove beside it on the Notom-Bullfrog Road for close to 60 miles on our way to Capitol Reef. #waterpocketfold #notombullfrogroad #capitolreef #nationalpark #nationalparks #capitolreefnationalpark #utah #utahunique #utahisrad #utahisbeautiful #divinedeserts #ig_shotz #ig_utah #ig_northamerica #unitedstates #ig_unitedstates #seeyourcountry #travel #travelislife

I drove the scenic route through the mountains of Utah and walked what they call “The Sleeping Rainbow”🌈The Waterpocket Fold, a wrinkle of the Earths crust that extends for 90 miles. I climbed up high into the teeny weeny eroded holes in the rocks, desperate for shelter from the unrelenting heat of the desert sun🌞 .

Capitol Reef National Park Day 2 - Learned a lot about the geology of this park. That’s 19 layers of sedimentary rock, some of which arrived all the way from the Appalachian region, blown north to Canada then south to here. These layers are known as the Waterpocket Fold. This is a special place.

One of the most badass geologic wrinkles I've had the pleasure of meeting, the Waterpocket Fold is a warp in the earth's crust stretching over 100 miles. Defined by the actions of orogeny, the entire region exposes vastly different epochs of time including those of swamps, shallow oceans, deserts and rivers.

"Say that I starved; that I was lost and weary: That I was burned and blinded by the desert sun; Footsore, thirsty, sick with this strange obsession; Lonely and wet and cold, but that I kept my dream!" Hugh Lacy from "On Desert Trails"

"Digamos que me moría de hambre, que estaba perdido y cansado: que el sol del desierto me había quemado y cegado: los pies ampulados, sediento, enfermo de esta extraña obsesión , sólo , mojado y frío, ¡pero que mantuve mi sueño!".
