The Drive

A week ago Monday I drove from Las Vegas to Torrey, Utah, and for the portion of the trip between St. George and Torrey I drove blue highways, passing through Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Grand Staircase National Monument, and Capitol Reef National Park. Camera was in hand throughout, of course, and here are some of the snaps I took along the way (as always, click ‘em to enlarge ‘em). But first, two snaps I like very much: the first is a shot of the evergreen-and-aspen clad flanks of Boulder Mountain …

… and the second is a shot of the cliff overlooking the Capitol Reef visitor center and fruit orchards, a cliff at the top of which I asked Wife to marry me (she said “yes,” and I only had to dangle her over the side for two minutes) …

Now, on with the snaps …

Finally, to see how Capitol Reef looks from above, visit the shots I took from 25,000 feet here.

Lovely pictures Chip! The colors in the canyons have been very beautiful this year, as every year. Ron and I did go to Paul and Becky's wedding, I'll try to write tomorrow about it, I have been swamped with paperwork today!!!!! I was off for three days and you'd think with the paperwork I have to type, I would have been off for three months. That's the good old State of Utah though.
