In something more than ten visits to Capitol Reef over the last 40 years I had never had the opportunity to get into the Cathedral Valley area in the Northern part of the Park, because I never had a suitable vehicle. This year we brought a Toyota 4Runner so could go anywhere legal. We did two overnight trips into Cathedral Valley -- actually planned for more time up there but the insects and wind were pretty unbearable! It is wonderful country, and we mostly had the whole place to ourselves, as there was very little traffic other than us.

The big problem I struggled with constantly is how to convey the scale of the place. Everything is enormous, and enormously impressive. I just don't quite have a handle on how to get this across...
