Capitol Reef National Park Travel Guide: 199 reviews and 445 photos
Outside Magazine once referred to Capitol Reef as one of America's Top Eight Under Visited Parks. This gigantic fold in the Earth's crust- otherwise known as a National Park, receives about 750,000 visitors annually. Most of these folks explore the park in the summer months. While its not exactly crowded during its peak season, during October and November, the definite off-season, Capitol Reef is virtually deserted. If you visit on a dreary day in late November when a big snowstorm is threatening to strike at any moment, you'll see nary another soul.
If you visit, which you should, you'll see lush landscape, towering formations that appear as more dirt than rock and a 100 mile uplift of the Earth's crust known as the Waterpocket Fold.
This page is under construction until I finish my other pages from the last trip. I'm currently working my way through in chronological order and I'll get here soon. Feel free to check back if you don't mind photos with a few gray clouds in them.
