Glorious Utah, evening and night in Capitol Reef
We left Scenic Drive as the sun was starting to go down and hurried to a parking place just off Highway-24, so that we could walk to Panorama Point to see the sun set. There was a beautiful tree which deserved to get the centre of attention. The sunset was not over dramatic but gave some warm soft light which accentuated the red tones of the cliffs.
Capitol Reef has some of the darkest skies in the US, so after we had had our evening meal we went back to the edge of the Park to look at the Milky Way.
