Capitol Reef National Park


Capitol Reef National Park, located in central Utah, is one of five stunning national parks in Utah. Capitol Reef features buttes, canyons, ridges, and monoliths. It was named for a line of white domes and cliffs of sandstone that were thought to resemble the United States Capitol Building. The park is most famous because it encompasses The Waterpocket Fold, a 65 million year-old wrinkle in the earth's crust.
