Capitol Reef National Park and Grand Staircase- Escalante National Monument

Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

We rented a SUV for a song and drove to Central Utah and stayed in a rented cabin for 3 days. It was like opening the decompression valves to full. All three of us were very happy for the short escape. We reserved the cabin and rental car last month. That’s when we decided that there was no better way to practice social distancing than Utah.
