A Thankful Time

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! And just like millions of Americans, we are thinking about what we are grateful for. It’s a long list. But here are a couple that we want to mention here:

We’re Grateful for You

First and foremost we are grateful for all of the guests that we get to host here at the Lodge at Red River Ranch! We get to meet people from all over the world. And we get to introduce them to the wonders of Southern Utah and Capitol Reef National Park. We love what we do, and we love getting to do it with you. Thank you to all of you who choose to stay with us.

We’re Grateful for Capitol Reef

Capitol Reef is one of the best places on earth. And we get to live right next door! It’s a geological marvel, filled with arches, red cliff walls, narrow canyons, and dazzling vistas. It’s also not over-crowded, especially during the off-season, which makes it a great location to take a break, find some solitude, and get in touch with the natural world. And while we might be biased, we think it really is a perfect national park!

We’re Grateful for the Weather

Ok. Wait. Just hear us out. We know that sounds strange, but the weather patterns here in Southern Utah are responsible for so much of the erosive forces that shape this land. We quite literally wouldn’t have Capitol Reef, or Bryce, or Zion without the yearly weather cycles. And it works out pretty great for us. The snowfall in winter is light, followed by lots of sun, which freezes and erodes the sandstone features, and is pretty pleasant to deal with. So yes, we are grateful for mild winters – but also for the snow which does fall.

Finally, We Are Grateful for Our Staff

Thank you to all the wonderful people who make Red River Ranch such a success. We are Capitol Reef’s premier luxury hotel because of all the hard work, attention to detail, and dedication that you provide. We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you.
