We went down to Capitol Reef to check out UVU's field station and the park, since he will be teaching a photography excursion class there this fall.
We didn't have a whole lot of time to check out all the cool sites of the park, but we had fun! The field station is about 9 miles away from the visitor center, but you have to take this dirt road and drive real slow, so it takes at least a half hour from the visitor center. The place was pretty neat, all solar powered, makes their own water, etc. Besides the full-time employee that came up while we were there, we were the only two people up there with no phone service and no one around; kind of weird being in what felt like the middle of nowhere all by our lonesomes.
Here are some pictures of Bryan and I 10 years ago, and some pictures from Capitol Reef.
