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.
Get out of town with these interesting Capitol Reef National Park side-trips: Factory Butte (in Caineville) and Anasazi State Park Museum (in Boulder). Spend the 9th (Thu) exploring nature at Capitol Reef National Park . There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Burr Trail, contemplate the long history of Gifford Homestead, trek along The Hickman Bridge Trail, and make a trip to Fremont Petroglyphs.

In May, daytime highs in Capitol Reef National Park are 63°F, while nighttime lows are 31°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
