Colorado Snapshots ~ Winter

July 29, 2015

Since moving to Colorado in the middle of winter we’ve experience freezing temps & snow, a month of record breaking rain, spring wild flowers and now hot summer days and nights. I want to keep track of a few of our favorite seasonal snapshots here on the blog. Actually having a change in the weather is SO new and exciting to us that we hope a few of our California friends & family may be curious enough after seeing the pics that they’ll hop on a plain or in the car and head out for a visit!

Here is our first Winter enjoying the great outdoors in the Rocky Mountains!

GWRT part 03 – Capitol Reef National Park

January 28, 2013

Driving through Utah, Capitol Reef National Park is a little known, little visited park in the system – but the long “waterpocket fold” in the land speaks wonders.  It’s a portion of land that the earth’s crust lifted and eroded to expose the beautiful layers of red rock, and hold pockets of water.  You’ll notice that the valley remains green and lush, as the precipitation still flows through this channel.  The Park Service preserves this land not only for it’s natural wonder, but also for the  settlers and farmers that used the natural water of the area.  The NPS retains an orchard of fruit trees to which visitors can enjoy in the form of a small stand that sells pies and preserves.

The amazing part about this park is it’s odd sense of plane.  You approach the park in the flat valley, and the walls around you seem to rise from no where, with an even, but skewed top.  It makes you feel as though you should be tilting your head just to feel like you’re standing straight . . .

GWRT part 02 – Bryce Canyon National Park

January 27, 2013

The second site on the trip, Bryce Canyon National Park, we unfortunately only had time to do the scenic view drive so we could make it to the next destination!  We definitely want to make it  back to hike down into that canyon.
