Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef National Park is a spectacular national park in south-central Utah. It receives far less visitors than Zion and Arches National Park. On my hikes I only encountered a few other hikers. I stayed in Torrey and only visited the area around the visitor centre on Highway 24. Capitol Reef National Park is huge, covering an area of nearly 1,000 square km, and I plan to go back one day to explore some remote corners of the park.

Nothing to see here, except rocks. But I love rocks.
More rocks
Yet more rocks and some trees.

A canyon wall. The path is actually "in" the wall.
