Escalante

Grand staircase Escalante is amazing place.
I haven't had cell service until now in Ely Nevada so am posting a few pix.
Oops, forgot to post this so now am catching up. S took off early to drive through Capital Reef NP and ended up over on other side of mountain.  So I drove over the 9400 ft mountain pass in storm conditions.  fortunately the storm was warm enough to not cause snow and hail to stick.  Was beautiful.  here are a few pix.
Driving over Boulder Mountain into teeth of storm en route to Escalante.  Aspens just budding out

After encamping in Escalante, we drove down Hole in the Rock road about 15 miles. (45 miles long).  Storm brewing and late in day.
