National Parks Traveler Podcast

Jul 14, 2019

The Capitol Reef Reader is not your typical national park guidebook. No trail, dining, or lodging information. Rather, The Capitol Reef Reader offers an incredible wealth of information in the essays Stephen Trimble has pulled together for this collection. Essays by the likes of Clarence Dutton who traveled the Southwest with Major John Wesley Powell, Ed Abbey, and that literary conservation giant, Wallace Stegner.

We talk with Trimble this week about how he pulled together the wonderful essays in this anthology on Capitol Reef National Park. Erika Zambello makes a short stop at the Old Post Office Building in Washington, D.C., and we end the show with a look at two wonderful monuments in Arizona, Wupatki and Sunset Crater Volcano.
