Beehive Traverse - Through the Heart of Capitol Reef's Waterpocket Fold

Sometimes things can come together so well it's as if catching lightning in a bottle.  That happened this fall when such things played out into allowing me the opportunity to fulfill one of my top bucket list hikes since I found out about it.  To do what's been called the Beehive Traverse, a route that takes one through the heart of the geological wonderland that is the Waterpocket Fold in Capitol Reef National Park.  It is a 17 mile route for the main leg, plus an additional 8 to 9 for an optional extension.
