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.
