A fun-filled 25 miles in the heart of Capitol Reef National Park linking Cohab Canyon, Frying Pan Trail, Grand Wash Trail, Lower Spring Canyon and the Sulphur Creek Route. This loop had a bit of everything: hiking ridgelines with massive vistas, walking dry creek-beds beneath towering sandstone walls, and splashing my way down a creek through a tight red rock gorge. Don’t forget to click on the image albums for bigger photos, there’s some beautiful shots from this trip.
I drove down from Salt Lake City on Friday morning and arrived at the town of Bryce about 1 p.m. I jumped on the next shuttle into Bryce Canyon National Park. I’d never been here before, so the excitement factor was high.
