Capitol Reef National Park

Southern Utah

Capitol Reef National Park is one of the less traveled parks in Utah's park filled south. Because of it's close proximity to Arches, Bryce, Zion, Goblin Valley, Canyonlands and others, Capitol Reef sees much less traffic, and therefore doesn't need as much money for maintenance.

The park is free.

The visitor center has an incredible miniature 3-D relief map, very interesting.

The Castle near the visitors center, the green sediment is often associated with uranium deposits.

The Capitol Reef Goosenecks.
See Goosenecks of the San Juan.

More uranium deposits sandwiched between red sandstone.

The Chimney, this spire is visible from the road.

A short walk up a wooden bridge leads you to these petroglyphs.

Continuing out of the park, these features become visible.

Just outside the park, colorful strata is everywhere.
