Leaving the Colorado River Basin and heading back up to the Plateau:
Hanksville – a store in the rock! In 1997, we were here and stayed at a motel across the street (sure wish I had kept a travel journal then.)
Another change in topography:
We arrived at Capital Reef National Park and we were able to get a nice site in Fruita Campground (we are so blessed). After setting up, we took a ride to the Visitor Center for some information and then to Torrey to check out the town as well as their visitor center. So much to do here – .
We have no cell or internet service so part of that ride was to find out where we can get service. About 8 miles down the road, we can get cell but very slow/limited internet so it should be an interesting week for me – LOL!
And for those who follow the blog, I will post when we get service. Sorry!
So stay tuned and enjoy today.
