After hiking the Fremont Gorge trail, I ventured into the empty Capitol Reef National Park to see what my next hike would be.
I only had grazing deer to accompany me as I paid the ten dollar entrance fee. A three plus hour drive that started before morning’s light has led me to this point.
I was somewhat surprised with the stark desolation of this place. I capture the roadside scenery as I slowly make my way deeper.
Eventually, I find the end of the road, and the start of a trail.
The road holds red rock beauty, but it’s now time to stretch my legs once again, and push the boundaries of my will and sanity.
