Welcome to Torrey and Capitol Reef
We're staying in the tiny town of Torrey, UT, where we have easy access to Capitol Reef National Park.
We're boondocking at the Thousand Lakes RV Park, which I highly DON'T recommend. All they do is complain about how much money they are losing by letting us boondock for $10 a night. DUH! $10 is certainly better than nothing. Not their fault is the fact that there is a forest fire across the valley - the smoke is driving me crazy.
We did get to see the transit of Venus across the sun. Although it wasn't that exciting, it won't happen again in our lifetime.
Torrey is a really neat small town, with lots of unique old buildings, such as this old mill.
But in this tiny town is this HUGE Cowboy Bar, the Saddlery. This bull met me at the door.
Each of the pool tables has its own buffalo head.
And there are real saddle bar stools.
But the best thing was the band - the Roundabout Band from Grand Junction, CO. We'll be seeing them again when we get to their hometown. The fiddle player was out-of-sight!
