Apple Blossoms, Capitol Reef National Park, Fruita, Utah

In mid-March, apple trees blossom in the historic Fruita, Utah, orchards, against the background of Capitol Reef National Park.

Visit during harvest season, and you can sample the apples, cherries, peaches, and other fruit – as much as you can eat! But you're not allowed to take any extra from the park.

I left a milkweed seed ball in this fertile place along the headwaters of the Fremont River.
