Sprawling across the south-central desert of Utah, Capitol Reef National Park boasts a dramatic landscape. Named after the towering white sandstone domes of Capitol Reef, this national park runs along the Water Pocket Fold, a rare geological phenomenon known as a monocline that makes for deep canyons and dizzying cliffs. Check out monumental arches like the iconic Hickman Natural Bridge that can be reached after a moderate hike. Nearby, the spectacular Cassidy Arch is named after the famous American outlaw, Butch Cassidy, who led the ‘Wild Bunch’ in the American Old West. Up north, the flat landscape of Cathedral Valley is dotted with weathered rock domes, reminiscent of ornate Gothic structures. The Fruita District is dotted with a variety of orchards and offers splendid and lush hiking trails. Petroglyph panels that can be viewed from wooden boardwalks off of Utah Highway 24 conjure up images of the Fremont Culture from thousands of years ago. As the sun goes down on this remarkable park, expect a spectacular weave of stars with Capitol Reef being a designated International Dark Sky Park.
