The three main spots in a single shot! We failed to go there on precedent trips as the dirty roads were always said by rangers unpassable and dangerous by flash floods; This time we got also a discouraging talk with a ranger saying that it was too hot and dangerous as non frequented; It has been a 10 hours driving in the desert loosing sometimes our way on dry stone plateaux and Pierre was obliged to leave the car to findthe continuing road; Finally we arrived there but saw not any cars on all the day! We felt happy to succed as the site of Cathedral Valley is really grandiose; On the way back by another dirty road we had at the end the obligation to cross the quite large Fremont river with our car; We were back at our motel just at night having started the trip in the very early morning; USA Utah Capitol Reef NP Cathedral Valley.

Merci Amandine, c'est la 3ème fois que j'essaye d'y aller, cette fois on a pu contempler ces splendeurs naturelles si peu fréquentées (et pour cause!), Jacques
