Mighty Five Vacation | Captiol Reef / Bryce Canyon
Alright we are halfway through the vacation now. We’ve hit 2 of the Mighty Five National Parks and this blog post will show you two more. After our stay in Moab we took off for Capitol Reef Park. We stayed the night in nearby Torrey and then took the Scenic Route 12 to Bryce Canyon. We did a couple of hikes in Capitol Reef and really liked the park. In Capitol Reef I really wanted to go through some more slot canyons. We went off the beaten path to Headquarters Canyon. It was a bit of a trek, but what a beautiful drive down the Burr Trail to find it.
Along scenic route 12 there was another slot canyon (because now I am obsessed with them) I heard about called Peek-A-Boo. It was a ridiculous washboard road out there with no signage. We thought we could quickly find it and do lunch afterwards. Well hours later we are still lost with smarties and water as our only provisions. The thought crossed our mind that if we ran out of gas or broke down we could die out here – it felt really remote and not a soul around. Finally at the end of the day we stumbled upon it. We quickly scurried down and saw what we could before it got dark. We finally hit civilization again at 10:00 pm – my youngest said that he was so hungry that if he could throw up he would eat it. Gross I know!
