Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef National Park is lies  in south-central Utah. It preserves colorful canyons, buttes and monotliths along 120km long up-thrust called the Waterpocket Fold extending from Lake Powell northwest to Thousand Lake Mountain. Thus the park while quite long – actually about 160km long, is at the same time narrow – and most visitors pass through it briefly driving by State Route 24 leading through Freemont River Canyon. Much better appreciation for variety of Park’s wonders can be gleaned from Burr Trail, which is a backcaountyr road, only partially paved, leading into the park from Boulder, down the fold on a series of switchbacks, and then north, along Waterpocket Fold to SR24.
