The town has an iconic backdrop called Steamboat Point, which was pretty cool.
At first, as I drove around there wasn't much to see other than a few signs. Then I came upon some old wood posts, but not much else.
So I decided to get out and walk around and see if maybe there were more. The more I walked to more I saw. A whole town started to slowly reveal itself.
Then I stopped at the Fremont Petroglyphs.
In the historic town of Fruita (not the same as in Colorado) I visited an old schoolhouse.
Then I visited Capital Reef National Park.
I drove back down and into Grande Staircase-Escalante National Monument and eventually got to the trailhead that was my original destination just as it was starting to get dark.
What a day. Time for a little dinner and a nice fire before bed.
