Capitol Reef is located in the state of Utah, and is one of Utah’s big five national parks.  The park runs from north to south, and is at the north end of what is known as the ‘scenic drive’.  Highway 12 makes up the ‘scenic drive’ which starts at Bryce Canyon to the south and finishes up at Capitol reef to the north.  It is truly a beautiful drive, and depending on what time of year is your favorite time of year for traveling, makes it worthwhile.  I like traveling in late September to early November to see all of the fall colors along the scenic drive. Highway 12 cuts through the Dixie National forest where the aspen trees are kicking butt with the golden-yellow colors.  There are a couple of scenic photo stops where in the distance you can see the ‘water pocket fold’; which is worth seeing. The park is open all year long. In the summertime, it’s hot, and in the winter time it’s cold. Make your first stop the visitor center to find out where the best hiking trails are, and the most photogenic areas.  

Romans 4:23-25, Romans 5:1

Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification. Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
