Greetings from Capitol Reef National Park!

Bettye and I have hiked trails in most of our wonderful national parks, but our hike through beautiful Cohab Canyon to the high point overlook is particularly memorable. The weather was perfect and the views spectacular. Setting our camera on a rock and using the timer, our joy for having reached this fantastic viewing and turnaround point was captured in our memory. This photo is also used on a book I wrote titled "The Aging Challenge: Making the Most of Life Over 50".

Sincerely,

Clifton and Bettye Ware

P.S. I support the parks because… They are our nation's greatest treasures, capturing and maintaining wilderness areas for future generations.

Get Social and the parks
