|Snow Canyon SP just outside St George, Utah|
On Monday we caravan'd with them to Torrey, Utah just outside of Capitol Reef NP where we spent all of last week exploring the area and giving our jeeps a good workout.
Check out some of the pics below.........

Is anybody thinking extraterrestrial?
Capitol Reef is one of 5 National Parks located in southwest Utah and it's well worth the visit. Make sure you check out Cathedral Valley, Burr Trail and Pleasant Creek Trail while you're there.
We took a day trip to Goblin Valley SP and Little Wild Horse Canyon.

Little Wild Horse Canyon features a interesting slot canyon which we took the opportunity to hike. The 50 degree temps weren't too bad...but the 20mph winds and blowing clouds of sand detracted from the experience. And being Spring Break for nearby areas and the Thursday before Easter made things a little crowded. In several sections the slot canyon is only 18" wide, impossible for groups to pass each other if hiking in different directions. At one point we ran into a Boy Scout group headed in while we were headed out. The scouts graciously made a bridge and allowed us to pass under.
We spent Saturday avoiding the crowds and working around the RV. We did our spring cleaning, made a few minor repairs. Sunday Dave broke out his smoker and cooked a ham, pork loin and some tri-tips which the 4 of us shared for Easter dinner. Monday we headed to Moab where we'll spend a few days exploring in the jeep.
Well, that's it for now. Stay Tuned. More to Come.
