Situated on the main road, it was just a few feet away from where the 4th July Parade ended, so we had some good views. The hotel had a quant little gift shop and just across the road was the Anasazi museum. There was no fridge or wifi, but there was cellphone reception. Restaurants are within walking distance, depends on how much walking you'd like to do.

The only tent that's set up looks like it's been unattended for days, or maybe Coleman just makes a special quality of tent.

No time wasted. :-) Capitol Reef features a few really cool things - petrolglyphs, for one. Also something called the Pioneer Register. This is a canyon wall where early pioneers carved their names as they travelled the route on their way to where ever the hell they were going. Some of the smart ass cowboys used their guns ...
... on the west side of the bridge across the Hassayampa River, but then bypasses downtown. These days, only highway 60 goes through town.
So, anyhow, I turned south on 89. There were more lights along it, but still there was virtually no traffic. There was now also a faint lighter shading on the eastern horizon, but it was still dark. I reached Kanab in just a bit over two hours. There were a few cars heading north out of Kanab, and then I was more or less on my own ...
... 8217;, lower, are steep chutes. The ‘crater’ is more or less circular, and has a diameter of about 100 feet (don’t quote me on this; this is a totally unsophisticated guess). Near the edge of the outer rim there is a massive boulder, and from this side it looks like the head of a dinosaur or alien, smiling. The crater was filled almost to the brim with the deep brownish red sandstone sand blown against the dinosaur head. Your first sight of it is just simply ...
