Another wonderful national park!! Arrived here Tuesday May 14 and will be leaving on the 18th. Weather until Friday has been great, sunny, not too hot. Today, Friday, is overcast with a cold wind. A good day for catching up on stuff.
THis park has some petroglyphs and a section that includes the town of Fruita which was settled by a group of Mormons in the 1800s. The name comes from the fact that they specialized in growing fruit trees such as apples, pears, peaches, etc. There are some original buildings and/or replicas. Many of the trees remain and are in fact tended, the fruit is free to park visitors.
