Was only about a 100 mile drive from Bryce Canyon NP to Capitol Reef NP so I left late in order to get into Torrey, UT in time to check in. Turns out I did not need to do that because apparently it was built into my GPS to delay me. I ended up in the park and the GPS said "You are here." Had to use Google Maps to get here. Anyway, it was a windy uphill drive here and did I mention beautiful. I stopped several times along the way to take in the views. Here is some of what I saw.
Here is a full panorama of the overlook which the photo above is part of.
Once I got to the campground and set up I headed into the park. Did a couple small hikes and stopped a couple of places along the way. The wind has been howling here all day since I arrived. Gonna be fun sleeping tonite! Here are a few images I took on my getting acquainted tour of the park. Tomorrow I start early and really do some exploring.
