Capitol Reef National Park takes its name from a particularly rugged and scenic section of the Waterpocket Fold, a geologic "wrinkle" stretching for 160 km (100 mi) along a dry plateau surrounded by white Navajo sandstone cliffs and domes, and red canyons, buttes, and rock bridges.

Spend the 26th (Sun) exploring nature at Capitol Reef National Park . There's still lots to do: stroll through The Hickman Bridge Trail and contemplate the long history of Fruita Campground.
