Capital Reef Nat. Monument

We came to a fork in the road and paused not knowing to go left or right. I decided left and soon found us at Capital Reef National Monument. This little park is an unknown treasure and I shouldn't mention it here, but no one reads this anyway so no harm done. It is like a mini Zion. Ten Mormon families once lived here planting orchards of fruits of all kinds which are still there today. The apples are delicious. The 70 spot campground sits in a grassy meadow within these orchards. There are an abundance of hiking trails among the Navajo Sandstone cliffs and canyons. This place is truly a gem.
