relaxing start to the day, with coffee and breakfast outside our cabin in escalante
drove over boulder mountain to capitol reef
fantastic views from highway 12 with aspen at peak color on the mountain
once in the park, we had a little picnic in fruita, then drove down the scenic drive to capitol gorge trailhead
crowded but seemed most were hiking the capitol gorge trail
we hiked golden throne trail first, a four mile round trip through beautiful terrain to a great view of the golden throne - just a few people on this one
spent some time at the endpoint overlook
next walked down capitol gorge and climbed up to the tanks, which both held water
high canyon walls along what used to be an old road
i don't enjoy walking through a wash much, but nice to see what this hike was about
drove to torrey and checked into our cabin at the trading post
