Non-Photographic Vacation: Day 5

Very slow wi-fi here at the Bryce Canyon Lodge, which can be forgiven because everything else is exquisite. We started the day at Capitol Reef National Park, then meandered along Route 12 (an awesome motorcycle road, but pretty nice in a car too) to make our way to Bryce. Tomorrow we go exploring, weather permitting (we arrived during an impressive thunder storm).

Turn in any direction in any part of Capitol Reef National Park for a beautiful view.

When he was a little boy, this behavior drove me crazy. Now it's kind of amusing.

Taking a break on Route 12, which took us through deserts, forests, mountains, canyons, and all the way to Bryce.

At the Kiva Koffeehouse outside Escalante. After we return I'll blog about the many photographic lessons I've learned on this non-photographic vacation, but the most important lesson so far is this: I thought that I was taking this trip for John, so he could see this part of the country that I love so much. But I realized today that he is also taking this trip for me.
