Capitol Reef National Park
Deep in the red rock country of south-central Utah, this hidden gem of a national park doesn’t draw much attention to itself, and for that reason it makes for a great place to visit to avoid the crowds. It’s situated along the northern 70 miles of the nearly 100-mile long Waterpocket Fold, a classic geologic monocline, or shift in the rock layers. In this case, it was a more than 7,000-foot vertical shift lifting the west side above the east side. The majority of visitors hit the central northern part where the main road goes through and where the visitor center is located. But there’s lots to see in Cathedral Valley in the far north and in Strike Valley in the far south of the park.
