From time to time, we at the Lodge at Red River Ranch like to think about the journey we’ve taken so far. We’ve done our best to provide a haven here in Southern Utah for people to come and enjoy the wondrous beauty of Capital Reef. We have been a stop for people seeking excitement, serenity, adventure and peace in the national parks and forests. All of which has made for us, and hopefully you, a remarkable experience. And so, we would like to thank all of you who have shared your journey with us as you traveled across our path. Hopefully, we’ll see you again.
Now, at the close of each year, we like to look back and rank what we think was the best experience of the year. And this year the winner was our further forays into Cathedral Valley. The starkness of the landscape provides for an unimaginable tour-de-force of Southern Utah’s desert country. So we highly recommend that if you get the chance in the new year, go explore this underappreciated part of Capitol Reef National Park. Drive the full Cathedral Valley Loop, getting out at all the important stops, hike around a little, maybe camp for a night, and just make a weekend of it. It’s a trip that you won’t forget.
We hope that, wherever you are, that you have a great, healthy, and prosperous year in 2016! Happy New Year!
