Capitol Reef, Utah

Capitol Reef National Park, Utah, Nov. 1, 2012: Located in south-central Utah in the heart of red rock country, Capitol Reef National Park, a geologic monocline (basically a wrinkle on the earth), extends almost 100 miles. The park is filled with cliffs, canyons, domes and bridges. The area was named for a line of white domes and cliffs of Navajo Sandstone, each of which looks somewhat like the United States Capitol building.
