Back on the road.
Stumbled into a cafe…
…With the perfect view.
Hickman Bridge. Easy hike, feels like you’re on Mars.
Of course if you come to Capitol Reef, you have to go to their orchards. The fruits vary by season, and when we visited in September, apples and pears were in season.
You can pick as many as you want and eat them right on the grounds for free. But if you want to bring some home, you’ll have to pay (the prices are ridiculously cheap, it’s like you’re robbing them)
Get some pies and jam while you’re there.
Continuing our drive through Capitol Reef, we saw lots of cool rock formations and hidden caves. Like Oyler Mine in Grand Wash Canyon, for example, where uranium mining occurred wayyyy back when… before they found out it was dangerous.
After 3 nights of camping out, we stayed at a hotel in the town of Green River, where we found an amazing Mexican food “truck” at a former gas station.
Their vampiras were SO good. Like quesadillas but even better.
Check out La Pasadita if you’re around the area!
Next up, sunrise at Canyonlands.
