Green River State Park, Utah To Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
November 4, 2020
It took me 15 minutes to break camp. 😁 Gave my home a bath - doesn’t she look good?
Great light and sky in Green River yesterday morning. Look at there - clouds. Haven’t seen many of them.
I had a Green River cantaloupe for dinner on Monday. The smell, taste and texture were amazing.
Everyone but Google Maps said take Route 24 out of Green River. Google had a different blue highway in mind.
I believe that up-cropping is part of the Swell. I need to flag this area as one to revisit I could spend a month here just exploring the terrain. Extreme weather here. Very cold in the winter and hot as hell in the summer (> 100 degrees).
After about 15 miles on tertiary roads I found Route 24. It takes right into Capitol Reef.
I still love my road shots.
If my memory is correct, the first town I came to after 50-60 miles was Hanksville. Named after a guy named Henry. Kidding. I don’t know the origin of the name.
No mask required. The clerk seemed annoyed that I was wearing mine.
Hanksville is not close to anything.
Why is Dino smirking?
To prove my point.
Can’t make up this stuff. 🤪
This was the scene of tge highlight of my day I am on BLM land here and up pulled a truck with two BLM employees They said I was a long way from home (I’m getting that a lot) and we started chatting They gave me recommendations on where to go (Route 72 - Cathedral Valley, Route 12 south and Burr Road). Confirmed I could camp anywhere on BLM land - campfire allowed. Told me that 97 percent of Wayne County is public land.
I laughed at this sign the whole state is a scenic view!
I made it!
