Heading to Capitol Reef:

So more miles of twisty fun with nice scenery all along the way. Some mountain passes and some canyon rides. All and all a fun section of highway to blast down on Highway 12.

Get to Capitol Reef and pull into Fruita Campground.

It's a little oasis in the middle of this desert environment and they have a apple pie bakery and restaurant there but we got in to late to get any.

Instead we raided the orchards for apples and some not ready pears. We had some trail bars and other things to munch on and that would constitute our meal for the night.

Good day of miles and we were only staying here for one night. We took a lot of pictures but they got lost (I'll tell that story later)...

So all I have is two pics from Capitol Reef. Bummer because it was a beautiful area with huge red cliffs everywhere and canyons too.

Orchard & Cliffs:

View out of the tent:

Route taken for the day: Ignore the yellow line out to cedar city. Route on the way back.

Coming up... Day 16 @ Moab & Bike/GPS Problems
2013 San Diego to Sturgis SD and Back!

2014 Uganda to South Africa and Back!
