When we arrived in the Fruita area the weather was still unsettled so we decided to stick with reasonably short hikes. Chimney Rock was a nice warm-up for our first of three hikes in Capitol Reef National Park today.

This hike was pretty straight-forward, first a short flat part, followed by a steep winding climb, a short catch-your-breath spot followed by another climb to the high point, which is Mummy Cliff.

Even with an overcast sky the views from Mummy Cliff were awesome. From Mummy Cliff the trail heads down in a roughly counter-clockwise loop through a series of switch-backs. WE had a few sprinkles off-and-on in the early part of the hike but the sky appeared to be clearing when the trail crossed Spring Canyon, so we decided to extend our hike into Spring Canyon.

After maybe just over a mile the sky changed again and it looked like more rain so not wanting to get caught in the canyon we turned back. Shortly after reconnected with the Chimney Rock Trail the sky changed for the better again. These changing conditions would continue throughout the day.
