Frying Pan Trail, Capitol Reef NP

Paul was nursing a calf injury, so he played shuttle driver while Jill, Pam, and I hiked the Frying Pan trail from Grand Wash trailhead back up to the Fruita campground. It had been at least six or seven years since I'd been here, and had forgotten how gorgeous the views are. The trail goes up from the Grand Wash trailhead, with views of Cassidy Arch.
The half-mile side trip to the arch is well worth it, particularly if you want to walk out on top of the arch like Pam and Jill here.
The highest elevation on the trail is about 6600', with 360 degree views.
