Capitol Reef

Over Memorial Day weekend we were able to go with a couple of families in our ward to Capitol Reef.  Kari’s parents have a house nearby that we were all able to stay in which was so nice.  We enjoyed exploring around their home and also going to Capitol Reef on Saturday and doing a few hikes.  The kids were such troopers and really did awesome.  They had 4 ATVs that we could use and I think that was the best part for the kids.  Luke called them “hiking rides”  It was nice to getaway from normal life for a bit and see some beautiful scenery.  Plus being with our friends was an added bonus!  Can’t wait until our next trip!

We caught this lizard within 30 minutes of being at the house.  The kids thought it was just about the coolest thing ever.  They named him “Toadie” and preceded to find him all over the place the whole weekend as we hiked about.  Such city kids!

All these photos are from our explorations around Fremont, UT.  It is pretty amazing there.  It is truly a rural life.  And although I couldn’t live there full time (I need a Costco!), I thought it was the best place to vacation.  The great outdoors does everyone good!  Plus the Albrecht’s home was so accommodating for us and we think it is pretty generous that they let us invade for 3 days!

Capitol Reef was beyond lovely.  The kids wanted to climb in every little cubby hole and take a picture.  The loved crawling in the little slot canyon we found.  It was about 20 degrees cooler in there so that was also a big plus!  We also stopped to look at some hieroglyphs which was cool.  It’s amazing to see things like that and imagine people being in the same place so many years ago.  Loved every second of this trip!

  1. What a fun trip with your friends! And such a bonus that it was free! Capitol Reef looks awesome, but some of those narrow paths in the rocks make me claustrophobic just looking at it.

  2. What a fabulous trip! And friends for everyone, that is hard to beat! These pictures are so fun, as always, such happy kids!
