We headed down the scenic drive with the cruise control set at 35 so we could take our time. The sky was a mixed bag with storms in the distance. The earlier showers had saturated the landscape and this really brought out the rainbow of colors in the rock. We’ve never seen Capitol Reef look finer. We took our time and lots of pictures as we meandered down to the parking area at the closed gate into Capitol Gorge. We stopped for a few minutes, and Sharon scanned for Desert Bighorn while I snapped photos.
