    Thats a cool old tree. Usually the cotton woods start shedding limbs before that.

    Capital Reef is fun, did you find the old fruit orchard (I think its probably still there??). I found a "surprisingly heavy" rock over by one of the abandoned Uranium mines, loml wasn't to happy when we took it home in the back of the rig
