Home for 2 nites

This morning we said goodbye/see you again to Brent & Dixie & headed toward Monticello. Our route took us thru part of Capitol Reef Nat'l Park. We hadn't seen the eastern side of the park & the beauty in the park continued as we left it. Our friend Diann said this trip thru Capitol Reef & across the Hwy 95 Scenic Byway was one of her favorite drives & as we drove it David said this should be designated the 2nd most beautiful drive in the world. Another day of so many fantastic sights that you just can't take it all in.

We drove thru the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area & crossed the Colorado River above Lake Powell. What a beautiful area!

We're settled now for a couple of nites in Monticello. (David lived here for a short time as a child.) Tomorrow we're headed to Moab & Arches National Park. More later...
