    Thanks- I spent a few years in the Mesa area as a teen

    I see you're a climber, may want to check out Logan Canyon (has some highly rated climbs I'm told) :nod

    For this evening's contribution, I give you,

    Capitol Reef Natl Park (and a bit of Hwy 24 and Hanksville)

    Great pics! Utah seems so prehistoric.

    Got any pics from inside the Hollow Mountain store?

    And what camera are you using?

    No inside pics of the store. In reality, it's not the most clean/organized place (but that sort of adds to it). THere are a few low hanging rocks for those over 6'. :becca


    All pics have been with a really simple Cannon powershot, point and shoot, that I pull out of the tank bag
