Capitol Reef, January 2019

capitol reef

I had hoped to make it out to Southern Utah this holiday season before ski season was fully in swing and eventually decided to see some more areas of Capitol Reef I had passed but not explored. The federal government shut down a little over a week before the trip, and amid reports of worsening conditions in National Parks without staffing, I was happy to discover that the Reef was relatively quiet and the facilities weren’t trashed like more popular areas.
