Capitol Reef Resort

... Or, at least, the view from our room there.

 

I've repeated many times now, that Capitol Reef

is highly underrated.  It's an amazing place!

Located east of Bryce Canyon, in the heart of red rock country,

Capitol Reef National Park is a hidden treasure filled with cliffs,

canyons, domes and bridges in the Waterpocket Fold, a geologic

monocline (a wrinkle on the earth) extending almost 100 miles.

 

And, at the Resort   (Click Here for their Website)

You can even stay in a teepee or covered wagon!

You are correct about Capitol Reef being under-rated... which is fine, because it has fewer visitors to get in the way of your shots. smile The air is about as clean as you'll get anywhere in the continental USA.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Spot on with all of your points, Larry!!

Did you and Frank stay in a teepee, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No ma'am - though they are actually quite nice inside... it was still too cold while we were there. They weren't renting them out yet. We had a rather luxurious room for what we paid...
I've found so many new vistas I really didn't know existed through your eyes, Elizabeth. Thank you!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You're so welcome, Ginnie! I LOVE showing people parts of the world they may never have seen! Sort of like what you and Ginnie have been doing with your trip to Italy! smile

What a fabulous pictures and what a view.... I think I will never get tired of that. I think the resort knows how to make a stay at their place very attractive... who does not want to sleep in a teepee or covered wagon... and let you imagination take over and play' cowboys and Indians) wink
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I could stay there for a long time.... smile It was comfy and the breakfast was fabulous!

If the Capitol Reef is under-rated, that works to the advantage of those in the know as it keeps the hordes away and allows its beauty to be appreciated better. Staying in the tepees could be a very "intense" experience.

I now know what to call my facial wrinkles - monoclines.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It absolutely does work in our favor, doesn't it! smile
HAHAHAHA!! "Intense".... you're such a wit!
I don't think you have monoclines, Alan.... no need to worry!
Merci pour la découverte de cet endroit qui doit être vraiment magnifique !
Bonne journée
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is such an amazing place, Claudine! If ever you get to the U.S. South West - you would really enjoy visiting Utah's "Big 5" National Parks plus the Grand Canyon!

Oh, what a wonderful resort with such a view!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: We were very happy there!
I bet the teepees all have all the mod cons of the 21st century
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It seems they do!
Talk about room with a view Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: This is it!

That top picture provides amazing depth.

After seeing all the movies of the demise of the original teepee people, I would find out the whereabouts of the nearest cavalry troop, before renting one.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Louis!
I'd be more concerned about the original teepee people... they've a right to be fighting mad!
The teepees are bright and colourful. Another interesting tour!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are! I hope you'll enjoy this week... smile

This was a trip to remember with all this fantastic scenery, and the resort looks very nice indeed.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think Astrid would say "I was short of eyes"!
Wonderful! - I'll take the room with all mod cons, thank you! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was my preference... smile
