Off the Eaten Path: Dining Between the Mighty Five

See the full article by Paula Colman published by Visit Utah here.

“Guests of these and other [Capitol Reef] area eateries, including Capitol BurgerColor Ridge Farm & CreameryHunt & GatherEtta Place CiderTorrey Grill and BBQ (all in nearby Torrey), realize that the connection runs both ways: the food introduces them to the land and its people, and their tourist dollars support this unique and fragile environment. 

These restaurateurs are stewards; visitors are patrons in the classical sense, and they cannot exist without each other. As rancher Andy Rice eloquently explained this symbiosis, “If the people spending those dollars could take a minute to ask themselves, ‘Is the money I spend going to stay in this community, or is it going to leave,’ that kind of thinking right there would make a big difference for everybody.” Unlike a homogenous theme park vacation, supporting businesses between The Mighty 5 becomes part of the local lore and, in very real terms, determines the next chapter.”
