Our next stop on the National Park tour was Capitol Reef National Park, not a place that you may have heard of but a place that is full of American history.
We took a break to stretch our legs and Sandra had to show off her shoes. Keens are the shoe of choice for hiking and camping, they are waterproof and comfortable which is HUGE if you are looking for a shoe that lets you explore and be comfortable at the same time.
So here is some of the history in this park, petroglyphs! Look closely and you will see ancient carvings on the rocks from native americans. They look like aliens but it’s probably because of a lack of art classes at that time in our country’s history. Some of the ancient graffiti has been destroyed by erosion but there is still enough for you to see if you take the time to pull over and look around the boardwalks and displays in the park.
Even if you miss the petroglyphs you will still have some amazing views in this park. It’s not as impressive as the Grand Canyon but there is no doubt that this is an amazing area and well worth the National Park status.
