Capitol Reef Day 2: Fremont River Waterfall Area

After all of the excitement in Burro Wash, and a hot and sweaty trek across the desert back to the car, we felt we deserved a nice refreshing dip in the river.  Luckily, my friend who was in Cap Reef last weekend suggested this sweet spot.

We all enjoyed the chance to cool off.  Erik, Kyle G, Kyle T, and I took turns cliff jumping.  Makayla got to use her inflatable tube that we thought we would get to use in Burro wash but didnt.  Jen and Cambri stayed at the top and enjoyed the cool shade and water. 

After the swimming hole adventure, we headed back to camp for some Grossarth family dutch oven specialties: chicken stew and peach cobbler.  Followed by some great storytelling around the fire.  Makayla got the best bedtime story I have ever been witness to. Great Day, Great weekend.  I am telling you, Capitol Reef is the best kept secret in the national park system.  Shhh! Don't tell anyone.
