Colorado Plateau Road Trip: Part 1 of 2

Since the first trip that Lisa and I took to Moab back in 2001 we've wanted to explore Utah and the canyons of the Colorado Plateau. We finally had a chance to see more on this road trip, visiting Capitol Reef National Park, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon, and the Lake Powell area. For good measure, we tacked on the Sand Dunes on the way home as well! This is the first set of photos from our trip covering Capitol Reef, Grand Staircase, and Bryce Canyon.
