Reef National Park
splashes color for 75 miles from its northern to southern
boundaries. The Waterpocket Fold (above), a bulging
uplift of rainbow-hued sandstone creates the park's "reefs"
and canyons. Most of Capitol Reef is an inviting wilderness
of sandstone formations such as Capitol Dome, Hickman
Bridge, and those in splendid Cathedral Valley.
In the midst of Capitol Reef's red rocks and ancient petroglyph
panels are large orchards where fruit may be picked in
season. Click here for detailed information on Capitol
Reef National Park.
