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.

Then back in the car again ...

Allegedly the park has its name as early settlers thought the white tops of the cliffs looked like the dome of the Capitol building in Washington . After our whistle stop tour and this park it ...
... free day, some people went in the van with Amanda to do a hike to a waterfall which they enjoyed but I chose to stay and do a short walk around the ranch and relax reading my book. The second morning we went horseriding, everyone was a bit nervous but it was very sedate, an hour and a half slow walking, the horses knew where to go. My horse was named Jake and was very well behaved. It actually got a bit boring by the end, and it was really ...
... tiny towns in the middle of the desert.
We arrived at our Hotel by 7pm and soon sat down to a steak dinner (very nice). SJ enjoyed her steak too and ate all of it. At dinner we learnt a little about Utah State drinking laws. Matt was allowed to have a beer and a glass of wine at the table at the same time.
