Breakfast with my German neighbors, then hide in the tent for an hour while the rain beats down.... Then a ride along the Noton Rd.
Finally, the sun came out and I headed for the backcountry Noton Road - paved for a few miles, then turning to dirt. Panoramic, stark views. A short hike to see a nice set of Anasazi, petroglyphs, then took the 10 mile scenic drive to Capitol Gorge where the Mormons blasted a road through the reef for easier travel. This was the only road through the reef until 1962.
Time for dinner. Halfway through my prep when the heavens REALLY open up and I scramble for my tent to avoid a good soaking.
30 minutes later the skies clear and I resume dinner, although the occasional cracks of thunder still roll through the canyon.
