Mini Vacation - Capitol Reef




Richard took off Friday from work and we went and visited Capitol Reef National Park. We took the younger two kids.The older two had work.


Here are some of the petroglyphs or rock art.





It was beautiful to visit, but would be better in cooler weather. 



One of several deer we say. We saw a deer standing on hind legs and eating some apricots. We missed getting picture though.


It was close to 100 degrees, so we did a very short (under 1/4 mile walk). Although too hot for Tanya, she still ended up with mild heat exhaustion, even with a cooling vest and plenty of water. 


Julia walking next to "tall mountains" her words.

 A cactus in bloom.


Jared walking.


Some pretty yellow wild flowers.


We drove over Boulder Mountain on way to family reunion.  It was at least 20 degrees cooler, but it didn't last very long.

First off your children are adorable! I miss mine being young, they are so excited about everything when they're little. Thanks so much for sharing your vacation pictures. We keep saying someday we'll make it out that way for vacation...someday. I'll just have to enjoy everyone else's pictures.

That brought back some great memories for me. Paul and I spent a couple of weeks one June visiting all the canyon areas in southern Utah. It wasn't quite that hot! I hope you had a great reunion, too.
