  • 1. Capitol Reef
    Capitol Reef National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

    This park is full of spectacular scenery. The hiking is great with a choice of easy or difficult places. This park has the only working fruit orchard in a National Park. There are Indian Petroglyphs, old homes, a great visitor center and wonderful campgrounds.

  • 2. Torrey
    Torrey, Utah

    A quaint little town (about 200 population) nestled between Thousand Lakes Mountain, and Boulder Mountain. Just 10 miles from the Capitol Reef National Park Visitor Center. There are several motels, bed and breakfast inns, and resturants that are unbelievable for a small town. We are also very friendly here.

  • 3. Calf Creek Falls Recreation Area
    Calf Creek Falls Recreation Area, Escalante, Utah

    This is not very far from Torrey and Capitol Reef. It is a good day trip and a wonderful place for a picnic.

  • 4. Burr Trail
    Burr Trail, Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

    This is a really fun drive--like going into another world.

  • 5. Bullfrog

    This is about 100 miles from Torrey at Lake Powel. Here you can go swimming, rent boats and also houseboats. They also have some nice resturants there.
