Road trip – to Boulder, UT. 4/25/21

Today we are driving to Boulder, Utah with a stop for a picnic lunch in Capitol Reef National Park. As we drive along the rocks change color and formation. Here is what we saw along the road.

This area is near the San Rafael Swell
Strange columns striped with dark brown
Towering cliffs along the road
Interesting formation
Getting closer to Capitol Reef N.P.
In the lower elevations trees have started to leaf out
Striated rocks topped by hoodoos 
Once in the park we find a picnic table under the towering cliffs
Our delicious lunch!
Even after leaving the park the scenery is beautiful
Cocoa colored columns
Interesting layers of rock
Two very good reasons for not building your home underneath a cliff

We finally reach our hotel in Boulder, UT. The wind has really picked up and is howling. Our room is not quite ready so we spend some time in the hotel’s common area. Later we go out for a very fine dinner in the only place open in this tiny town.

At the Burr Trail Grill John and I both have the trout with rice and beans. I also get a beet, greens, and goat cheese salad while John gets fried green tomatoes
