P6192794ac Temple of the Sun and Temple of the Moon
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 find the continuing road; Finally we arrived there but saw not any car 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; Another unforgettable experience !; USA Utah Capitol Reef NP Cathedral Valley.

Il y a si longemps que je rêvais de voir en vrai ces temples du soleil et de le lune quasi inaccessibles! 10 heures de piste seuls dans le désert pour accéder à Cathedral Valley, il ne faut pas avoir une panne de voiture! C'est pour ça que les rangers du parc déconseillent presque toujours cette aventure en prétextant mille dangers! Il est vrai qu'à certains endroits le sol était en pierre et on ne voyait plus la piste! Merci guenievre
