Capitol Reef National Park and Lake Powell

After leaving Cortez, Colorado, we headed into Utah, riding by Lake Powell and National Bridges National monument. 

Lake Powell

It was a long day of riding through the hot desert - but we saw some beautiful scenery around Lake Powell.

Natural Bridges National Monument

We spend the night near Capitol Reef National Park and rode through Capitol Reef the next day.

Capitol Reef has several majestic and beautiful rock formations.  If you look close you can see ancient petroglyphs in the rocks.
