For those of you that haven't been to this part of Utah... here it is, Day 1.
A 2.5 hour drive, that with 3 boys + 1 husband that drinks a lot of Mountain Dew, seems more like 5 hours.
Lucky for us, there was a really nice cabin available at short notice, kinda made it all worth it when we arrived.
However, I almost didn't book this said Cabin after visiting the website. Typefont is Papyrus... I hate Papyrus. I mentioned this to Mr Briggs, the owner, when I spoke to him over the phone, but he explained me that the font Papyrus was one of his favorites. After arriving here in the town, I think everything is in Papyrus (menu's, signs, t-shirts). Tomorrow I will take pictures of everything I see in the typefont Papyrus. The town will be amazed when I bring in some new fonts on our next family vaca.
Okay, focus... we took interstate 24 to get here, and passed through some great small towns. I love small towns.
This is my little 4 year old, Ryder.
He loves to wear his cowboy boots without socks, on the opposite feet.
We stopped in the small town, Torrey, for some Buffalo Burgers at the Red River Ranch.
Ryder found a swing. I couldn't resist taking pics with this light.
Capitol Reef National Park is known for it's magnificent and colorful canyons, ridges, buttes, and monoliths. A "local" named Amanda told us about a secret hike that we will do tomorrow, if Ryder can take off those boots.
