In Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef is named after one of the rock formations that looks like the dome of the Capitol. The area has colorful canyons but also orchards and old buildings dating back from when the Mormons settled in the area. We couldn’t do our last walk of the day because a storm was threatening and we were in a canyon with high risk of flash flood. The weather turned windy, rainy, and really cold. Sadly we lost a lot of time in Grand Junction and now we have to finish the trip with cold temperatures. Tonight it’ll be 1°.
