Torrey goes to Torrey
It’s been a little over 5 years since we brought Torrey into the family. At the time, we still had the house, I still had a day job, and most of our traveling was for art shows, or camping. We went to the Torrey, Utah area quite a bit. Torrey, Boulder, Teasdale, Notom, all those area were our favorites to get away from the masses. We talked more than once about buying land there, and we named the dog after the town. Funny thing, after we got Torrey we never went there again. So she had never been to the town, or area that she was named for.
Until Sunday morning when I said to Al, “Lets take a drive to Torrey for the day”. We are about 2 1/2 hours from the town of Torrey, and another 30 minutes to our favorite camping area. We have wanted to see if we could take the trailer down there to boondock anyway. When we camped there before we had the truck camper, and could go anywhere we wanted.
So off we went for a day trip. Capitol Reef NP is the main attraction for this area, but not a lot of people go there. I don’t know why, it’s very beautiful there.
Loooove the red rock desert, and it was so nice to see it again.
We found a place to wander in the desert. What a refreshing, and peaceful change it was.
Al is the best heart rock finder. Check out this unusual find, and of course the other rocks we had to collect.
Lovely views and vistas.
Torrey enjoyed her day of hiking in the desert, I believe she liked the area too.
And Roxy was back in an area where those little legs have hiked a ton of miles.
It was nice to see the area really hasn’t changed much in 5 years. Torrey is still a very small town, and probably always will be.
And that’s a good thing.
