We got to Capital Reef National Park so late in the evening that we really didn't have time to explore.  However, I did get a few photos.

The sunset that evening was spectacular, with hazy mesa layered upon hazy mesa.

Dead Horse Point State Park, adjacent to Canyonlands National Park, was my favorite area of the entire trip.

There is a spectacular road that goes through Dead Horse Point and Canyonlands that I will take during my next trip out here!

To give you an idea of scale, there is a jeep on the road in approximately the center of the photo.

Canyonlands National Park offered additional views into the same canyon.

Colorado National Monument was a side trip we made on a day that we decided we were NOT going to drive hundreds upon hundreds of miles.  I think we kept it under 300 :)

A scenic road east of Moab follows the Colorado River.  

All along the way, we could see rafting trips with people floating through the rapids.  I'd like to do that some day, too!
