Quick Cathedral Valley Trip

Saturday, March 23, 2013

This wasn’t supposed to be a quick trip. I was planning on camping at the Cathedral Valley Campground and spending the entire weekend in the area, however the cold temperatures and strong winds made me change my mind while I was out there. Instead I drove part of the loop and made a few stops at some of the overlooks and then drove north to I-70 through the San Rafael Swell to make a big loop back home.

An easy road when dry, but it would be no fun when wet.

I stopped by the Temple of the Sun and the Moon.

I stopped at Danish Flat for a quick photo of the clouds over the landscape.
