A part of our group decided to tackle the Burr Trail which winds it way through both Capitol Reef and the Escalante- Grand Staircase national monument. Some others weren’t as adventurous. A variety of road surfaces.
We traveled through the heart of the Water Pocket Fold. As usual, pictures don’t show much.
Saw a pack trip heading up into the Fold.
Then we headed up the switchbacks to get back on top of the plateau.
Looking back at the Fold from the top.
View from the top.
Yep, those colors are real.
We also stopped at a small clot canyon.
Our brave group of explorers. Aren’t camera timers wonderful? And, no, Cleo and I haven’t traded wives…
Next up. Escalante and Calf Creek…….jc
