Capitol ReefFamous for its Waterpocket Fold, the park offers views of many colorful canyons, ridges, buttes, and monoliths.
Capitol Reef National Park is located North-East of the Grand-Staircase Escalante, in a very remote location. It is a very peaceful and quiet place, outside of main touristic routes. The geologic features this park is trying to preserve are probably not appealing to most people at first. However, I’m sure almost everyone would appreciate the unique views of the Waterpocket Fold, this 100 miles long monocline with differential erosion of the rock layers.
