Road To Escalante

A four day trip to southern Utah and Western Colorado, with stops at the Colorado National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Four glorious sunrises and Three beautiful sunsets, thanks to a storm track just north of my route.
January 14-January 18, 2011.
