Both of these were just a stop thru for us on our way from Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument to Canyonlands. Lots and lots of driving! Nonetheless, each was definitely worth the stop. Capitol Reef has some awesome canyon views with some incredible colors and all the hikes are fairly short. Not too far away is Goblin Valley, which was a fun place to wander around amongst the “goblins”. We are now a few days ahead of schedule, so we had to rearrange the entire itinerary!
