Busy day today…. After a yummy breakfast bagel at Sweet Cravings in Moab we stopped at Dead Horse Point State Park. What fabulous views of Canyonlands and the Colorado River.
From there we toured the bizarre formations at Goblin Valley State Park,

The day ended with a few miles of preliminary reconnoitering of Capitol Reef in anticipation of tomorrow’s full day tour of the park. Our humble room at the Best Western includes another stunning vista off the back patio:
