Heading to Capitol Reef

Friday, June 15, 2018

Beginning our first real trip of the year – destination: Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

Left home about 11 or 11:30, arrived at Kannaraville, Utah rest stop about 4 pm. We were the only ones in the large gravel parking area. But by bedtime there were several semis parked along with us, and by morning I counted about 10 semis, a Class C, a Class B, and a travel trailer. There was curbing all around the gravel parking area, so we had to be careful going over the curb when we left, but had no problem doing it (carefully of course.) It was really, really windy when we got there, and still fairly windy when we left the next morning. Temps were pleasant, probably low 80s. Comfortable sleeping with a sheet and got chilly and needed the light comforter before morning. There were street lights around the parking area but were not nearly as annoying as the constantly running trucks. Some turned off their engines for the night, but others did not. I woke many times during the night. Sun was up about 5 but we finally got up about 7.
