|Land of the Sleeping Rainbow or Capitol Reef?|
|Start here, climb 1100 feet, (a moderate climb)|
and leave the crowds behind.
|The crowded parking and picnic area for the Capitol Gorge|
and Golden Throne trails.
|A side-blotched lizard scampers onto a rock to|
have a look at us.
|Indian Paintbrush in bloom along the trail.|
|Tim hikes toward the Golden Throne.|
|Rita gazes at the Golden Throne. I'll bet the Indians |
had a better name for this rock too.
|View from the top of the trail looking east|
toward the Henry Mountains.
