Don’t drive through Capitol Reef without stopping to see the fruit orchards and one room school house at Fruita. Fruita was a tiny town in the middle of Capitol Reef — what a location to live in! The kids and I really enjoyed peeking through the windows of the school house, and imaging Laura, Mary and Almanzo going to just such a school.
Another must stop at Capitol Reef is the Goosenecks overlook. Sulfur Creek is one of the most wonderful hikes in Capitol Reef, and I hope to do this hike again this summer and show you pictures of it. In the meantime, looking off the overlook down into this deep canyon gives a foretaste of what is in store.
We stopped at the overlook to take some pictures.
I guess you can tell how much Max hates hiking.
Lots more to see in Capitol Reef — can’t wait til I get to go there again. Hope you’re having a great week!
