four wheel camper truck camping

Ever since driving thru Long Canyon in 2012 I’d wanted to camp there.  I was excited to be heading back but nervous about finding a spot as I remember there not being many.  Our day started off driving thru Capital Reef National Park via hwy 24.  We drove thru magnificent red rock landscapes before hopping on Hwy 12 where the topography turned in to alpine forests as we drove thru Dixie National Forest.  From there we descended back in to red rock country as we picked up the Burr Trail at Boulder Town.  Here is where we headed in to Long Canyon, a narrow canyon with towering rock walls in every direction.  To my delight, we lucked out finding an open campsite, one of very few, that would be the perfect place to call home for the night.  Perched beneath a cottonwood tree shedding it’s last yellow leaves, we listened to the wind howl all night and were glad we decided to move on from our previous campsite where there was sure to be nothing but walls of sand moving at a rapid pace along the desert floor.

It was about this point in our trip that our hopes to slow down, camp more and drive less started to go out the window.  We didn’t have service and the road we were parked right alongside turned out to be much busier than we’d assumed.  It was a beautiful spot, if only for one night but we took off the next morning in search of….what exactly…we weren’t sure.
