    On backcountry Hwy 24, almost midway between Zion & Bryce Canyons and Arches & Canyonlands National Parks, Capitol Reef is the place for real desert 4WD rats. You can follow long, long dusty dirt washboard roads alongside monumental geological oddities. Or bring the kids and go apple-picking in the orchards of pioneer-era Fruita.

    One of these days I will have to do more than drive through or fly over Capitol reef. Stunning scenery, but there is a lot of that in the area. Not my favourite.

    Often forgotten, but that is just because it is surrounded by the likes of Canyonlands, Bryce, Arches and Zion. Tough competition. However it has an awesome arch, cool petroglyphs, an eternally echoing canyon (at the end of the road), and a valley oasis full of fruit orchards.

    This park is not really famous but really beautiful. I've been there in October, so trees were really colourful. Some trail, about 2 hours to walk, are really relaxing and wild (nobody during all the trail just hinds)

    Take the Cathedral Valley Loop for one day, stay the night at Red Sands Hotel. Then explore the 100 mile Water Pocket Fold or hike to Hickman's Bridge and stay another night at Red Sands Hotel to relax in the hot tub and new beds. Last, take a drive down Scenic Road to the Grand Wash or Capitol Gorge. If you want to stay longer; take a trip along scenic highway 12 to Calf-Creek Falls, Escalante National Monument and Bryce Canyon. www.RedSandsHotel.com
