Capitol Reef National Park
The Waterpocket Fold of Capitol Reef is the largest geologic monocline (a wrinkle in the earth) in North America extending for almost 100 miles. It is full of narrow and wide canyons, cliffs, domes, bridges, pinnacles, and the Fremont river. The historic properties and biological diversity found in the park make the park a true diamond in the rough. Originally set aside in 1937 as a monument, the park now contains over 241,000 acres. This National Park Rocks!
