After a summer of neglecting my Musings and News, I’m back. Writing from Capitol Reef in Southern Utah seems like a fine place to start. It is just so DANG beautiful here. The skies, the colors of the rocks and dirt, the way the land just juts up in these great formations and you really see the turbulent ways of the earth.
We arrived here yesterday. Flew in to Salt Lake and rented a car. Bill and I had our obligatory (one per vacation) big argument in the car on the way down. Something to do with the map (him driving, me reading. of course). I had the urge to wad it up and throw it at him. But he was driving, so I just folded it neatly and went quiet. He pulled over and I drove and he read the map.
Then we saw this guy.
Here’s the actual arch.
