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.

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 ...
... way and it was very overcast I was very happy to arrive and see that the ranch is really comfortable, and the food is amazing, and all local and organic. We didn't have dinner until 9:00 so Vicky and I chatted in our cabin, I reorganised my bag and had a shower then we sat on the deck with a glass of wine, it was lovely! There is a large common area in the main lodge with comfy couches and a balcony, and free wifi. The first day we had ...
... in them. However, the walk itself was really nice with good views but more importantly it made us start to feel connected with the park and once that happened everything seemed to look and feel better.
