The Castle
The Castle, with its shattered-looking ramparts, rises prominently in Capitol Reef National Park near the Visitor Center and is one of the park's most recognizable sights. It is not close to being the highest or largest formation in the park, but its features make it one of the most dramatic. Here, golden cottonwoods along the Fremont River help frame this spectacular peak.

Thanks a lot, Kathy. It was an amazing sight, and an amazing place. Capitol Reef has everything that's great about southern Utah but without the bustle of places like Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Arches.

Thanks, Sarah. We were actually very close to committing to move to Nevada in June but decided, considering the economy, that leaving secure jobs for a state with one of the worst unemployment rates in the nation was a bad idea. Rest assured, though, I will still be out from time to time.

Thanks-- the lighting really did work out nicely that afternoon, and I got the best shots of my trip that day.

Thanks-- I'm going back this October to see if I can find a way up that crazy-looking thing.
