Capitol Reef National Park in July
Last weekend we took the Jones family down to my parents home and stayed and played for the weekend. Mark Jones loves to hike and I had told him about a little hike down at Capitol Reef that only the locals know about. It is not a marked trail and I don't think one person in the park's visitors center knows about it. It is one of those wonderful 'good ole boys' secrets.
The first obstacle of the rock wall was to get a piece of wood wedged between it and another rock to use as a stepping spot. We had to break the ends off of a piece so it would work the way we needed it to, and then we got another one, to make two steps.
