Chimney Rock

Don’t I already have a post by this name?  It seems like there has been a Chimney Rock at every park we have visited on this trip!

Today (Tuesday) is our last day in Capitol Reef National Park.  I won’t go on about how it would have been nice to take the Scenic Drive to Capitol Gorge and see the Waterpocket Fold and maybe some Desert Bighorn Sheep because that didn’t happen!  In case you didn’t read my last two posts – the road is closed for paving but we didn’t know this until we went to make the drive.  Instead, we talked about driving to Richfield for supplies but opted for a short hike to Chimney Rock and then a day relaxing around camp.

I should try to find all of the Chimney Rocks and do a retrospective of them!

There was a nice view at the high point of the hike:

Yes, that is a view of Alan’s very sexy legs!
