Hi Camperjim, Good to hear from you here. I spent this morning going through your photos and meant to contact you for more information because you seem to be very familiar to the area. So.. this mesa is called "Mancos shale"?
Yes, I learned that those pretty wildflowers are not that predictable from year to year. So.. I may have to just depend on some luck. I am thinking of another routing in March, or April. It is very nice area to be. Thinking of rounding Moab, Monument Valley, and Capitol Reef area this time. Any of your suggestion...Show more →
This area is wonderful in the Spring. March can still be pretty cold in these areas, again because of the elevation. April is great but be forewarned that this area will probably have more visitors than you would think. Salt Lake City school districts stagger spring breaks in April and many families come to the Capitol Reef area. It is the busiest month in the Park. If you camp, the campground will be filled by early afternoon. If you stay in motels, also consider making reservations as there are not many choices. There are lots of choices to visit between Moab, MV and Capitol Reef. If you want to see anazasi ruins there are endless choices including house on fire, fallen roof ruin, hundreds of smaller sites and large sites such as Hovenweep. For landscapes, you can consider some of the lesser visited areas such as Natural Bridges, Goosenecks and Valley of the Gods SP.
