2016 Epic Road Trip - Day 100

Day 100

August 21, 2016

Today was a day of awesome Utah scenery and National Parks.

Began the day at Escalante National Monument and headed north through Capitol Reef National Park, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and then Hite N.R.A. to Natural Bridges National Monument.

From there I traveled past Wilson Arch and Hole ‘n the Rock to Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.  Speed limit on Utah interstate was 80 mph.  Drove east into the evening and ended the day at Montrose, Colorado.  Gets dark a whole lot earlier in the mountains and in the lower 48.

It didn’t make a lot of difference whether I was in a National Park or between two parks; the scenery was incredible and changed as I drove through different areas.

As I entered Colorado, the mountains changed to white, but not snow.
