Fred’s Capital Reef National Park

Capital Reef National Park is not an easy park to get to. Located in southern Utah, it is pretty much a long way from everything. It is a wonderful park, however, and in some respects reminded us of Arches NP in terms of geology and striking rock formations. But whereas Arches NP has busload after busload of visitors clogging up the roads in that park, and when these visitors get off of their buses overwhelming the more popular hiking trails, because of this park’s remoteness you can cruise one of the few roads in the park unencumbered and hike on trails virtually alone. In an earlier post I shared my images of the lunar eclipse that I took on a remote mountain top in the park. Below is a collection of photos from various areas around the park which will provide you with a view to its spectacular beauty.
