Like I said, I need to catch up so here's the next post. We'll be moving fast so try to keep up!
We spent a restful night in the town of Huntington, UT and woke up eager to see more of what the state had to offer.

Breakfast that morning was powdered donuts and Coke Zero at the nearest gas station. Forty miles later we pulled over at a nice rest stop, in the town of Emery, so I could use the faculties. Nothing serious..I just needed to use the bathroom. My dad checked out the local history of the area.
Fishlake National Forest. Beautiful country! If you ever get a chance to visit Utah, make sure you drive through this area!
Dixie National Forest. The amazing views just kept on coming!
Capitol Reef National Park. According to Wiki the park got it's name from the domes and cliffs of white sandstone that look like the Capitol building in Washington D.C.
Burr Trail Grill, park of a larger resort near the town of Boulder.
Escalante National Monument. This place has to be visited to be believed. There's no way I can properly describe it and do it justice. The road was paved over vast endless sandstone formations. The temperature was just starting to get toasty. Not sure I'd want to visit in the middle of August:)
Grand Staircase. We pulled over to snap a picture of Powell Point off in the distance. I took some more pictures of it from the west side, in the town of Tropic.
Bryce Canyon National Park. I should have pulled over and taken more pictures, but we were getting tired and I had visited this area once before while in college. Take a gander of what's there via Google images:)
Crazy Horse RV Camp park. Not a five star location, but the owners were very nice and let me borrow some of their laundry detergent, for free, to do some laundry.
