Hello from Torrey, UT 2019

Hello from Torrey, UT 2019

Thursday afternoon – November 7, 2019   (First post of this travelogue)

This will be a multipart travelogue spanning the next three weeks.  Pat and I are visiting some of our favorite locations.  These spots bring back fun memories and are rather special to us.  About half way through this period, we will be in Las Vegas for a Stampin’ Up! event.

About the time we started planning the SU travel, Pat was in her terrible accident.  As her recovery progressed it became likely that she would be able to enjoy a bit of an extended driving trip linked to the SU event.  We then began to think about the places that were on the top of our “must visit again” list.    

You might note that our title format is slightly different from our norm.  This is because we used the same title (without the year) in 2013 (link to our 2013 blog).

We are staying at the Capitol  Reef Resort in Torrey (link to Google Maps)

Let’s catch up a bit before we discuss today’s event.  We left Evergreen Tuesday morning and drove to Grand Junction.  As will be the case on most of our travel days, we are going to try to keep the mileage down so that we can enjoy our travel a bit more that our normal hustle and bustle travel {grin}.  Wednesday we travelled to Richfield Utah which is close to the junction of I-70 and I-15.  Both nights we stayed in Holiday Inn Express (our hotel of choice).

The weather, so far, has been almost perfect.  Clear skies and cool shirt sleeve temperatures.

Today we toured Capitol Reef National Park.  We have been to most all of the National Parks in Utah and this one is a real jewel that not many folks know about.  One of the highlights of the park is a 20 mile round trip drive to Capitol Gorge.  I have included a few photos.

That is all for this post.
