A wonderful stay in this very convenient inn. The room was large and confortable, the breakfast was delicious (strongly recommend the pancakes !), and so close to Bryce Canyon. Recommend it !

... something. After Escalante we hit an internationally famous stretch of byway called "The Hogsback"- we had not heard of it!- but it is a great drive! The scenery is amazing as you go down the razorback ridge of slickrock. The sandstone formations were sand dunes 168 million years ago! And there are mountains all around.

I then drove the car stupidly fast out of the park to go get lunch. At least, I thought it was fast until The Yank and I decided to go travel the road to Escalante and back. This would be the ultra cool road I mentioned in the previous blog. The Yank was happy to hold the camera and video some stretches of road for me. Very generous of him because that camera gets ...
... deer wander the area including around the very nice campground. The park is named for massive white domes that resemble the capitol building. There are some scenic drives and quite a few hiking trails. Utah is starting to wear me out so I only took a couple of the easy ones. However, I did drive my van down about a lane and a half dirt road through the deep and twisting Capitol Gorge Canyon. A nifty little trip. All in all, a rather pleasant ...
