Park
“Capitol Reef National Park is another great place to explore Utah's interesting landscapes. Located directly west of Canyonlands National Park, Capitol Reef reveals a huge wall of banded sandstone rising above the Fremont River. Canyons, rock spires, cliff walls, arches, and gorges dominate the scenery and are an inspiration for anyone with an interest in photography. In the distance, the wall dominates the landscape and glows an almost purple color in the late day sun. Most people come here for sightseeing, but you'll also find a variety of hiking trails in the area. This park sees far fewer visitors than most of the other big parks in Utah, which can be a refreshing treat. The nearest town to Capitol Reef is Torrey, to the west of the park, where you can find accommodation and camping options. The park's visitor center is 15 minutes from town and is located at the start of the beautiful Capitol Reef Scenic Drive, one of the main highlights of a visit to the park.”

“Can anyone say ambience? The Hell’s Backbone Grill is a great location for a special occasion. It’s the place to see and be seen for travelers and locals and offers comfort food with a twist at a slightly higher price point. They grow much of their food on their local farm and offer a cookbook of recipes and local history. This restaurant has a full liquor license and also serves brunch Saturday and Sunday.”

“Bicknell made it's mark on the foody map when the Food Network featured Bhindas Curry Pizza Palace's specialties, Honey Curry Pizza and Curry Pizza, on Guy Fieri's Diners | Drive-ins | Dives (premiered January 4th, 2019). Curry Pizza has an eclectic menu, will deliver, AND they are open late (until 10 PM on week nights and 11 PM on the weekends). The Indian dishes are surprisingly good, you won't be disappointed! Website (for current menu): www.BhindasCurryPizzaPalace.com NOTE: Curry Pizza is located in the formerly known local favorite, The Badger Den.”
