Hit the road running to climb out of the river valley and find home for the night
Ah yes another day of unplanned adventure awaits us. We throw a haphazard route together and hit the asphalt at full speed. Today we plan on making it out to Capitol Reef National Park. We know nothing about this place or the mystery that it holds. It's only a couple of hours from Moab... so we are pretty chill about finding a place to call home tonight.
We ended up pulling into a rest area right before the park and unhook Shirley. She takes us up a nearby road for only a couple of miles and we see some beautiful BLM parking just waiting to be claimed.
Eli gets to have his favorite type of walk; unleashed. This gorgeous oasis in the middle of Utah turns out to be a very welcome sight for some wear travelers. No TV, no cell signal, and no radio stations. A little secluded? Absolutely. Guess we'll just have to make do.
