We left Bryce at about 6 PM and returned to our campsite. We gathered some more firewood and worked on polishing off the gin & tonic. After our large, late lunch, we decided to skip making dinner at the campsite.
Another camper came walking by and let us know where we could pick up the campground’s wireless internet signal…we didn’t even know it was available. We struck up a conversation with Steve, nicknamed Hutch, a retired commercial real estate agent from Oklahoma who's spent the last six months travelling in his Honda Civic. He’s camped his way down the coast of California, thru New Mexico and Arizona and had just arrived in Utah. He was also impressed with the cleanliness of Red Canyon’s campground. We told him that every place we stayed in Utah seemed very clean. Hutch was headed to Torrey and Capitol Reef in the morning, and we filled him in on the scenic drive and all the attractions ahead.
From there the conversation wandered over a wide variety of topics for another hour or so. When we finally said good night, Hutch seemed like an old friend. We finished the gin and enjoyed the fire until about 10:30 before diving into the tent.
