We finally made it out to Cathedral Valley over Memorial Day weekend. I've spent a lot of time in the central part of Capitol Reef National Park, and I've been trying to get to the more remote, but no less interesting northern and southern parts of the park for some time. The Water Pocket Fold district will be next.
By the time we rolled into the primitive Cathedral Valley Campground (only six sites) Saturday night, it was full. It was no big deal, we just drove a couple more miles up the road toward Thousand Lake Mountain and into the Dixie National Forest where dispersed camping allowed.
Here are the photos in no particular order:
On the way home, we stopped to hike the Lower Calf Creek Falls trail. It's a good six miles round trip, but the girls had no problem with the distance.
