Change of plans went we got to Kanab, Utah. We intended on exploring Vermillion Cliffs off road trails, but consistent reports of deep sand on the trails we chose not to take the risk of getting stuck. We went to Bryce Canyon for the day. Wow, there were a lot of people there and about 30% were were wearing masks. This was the most populated place on our trip!
On our way to Moab we took an unplanned excursion to Capital Reef and had lunch in a lovely park. There was a lot of smoke haze from all the wild fires in Colorado. Since we were trying to avoid people did not to go to Arches, we went to Goblin State Park instead. We explored the park and checked out a couple off-road trails in the area. On the way back to Moab we found an alternate route on HWY 128 which went through an amazing canyon. The ride was so fantastic that we took it again to I-70 on the way home.
