Of all the places we went last fall in Southwestern Utah, the little known Capitol Reef National Park was my favorite. Capitol Reef has multiple layers of rock from pink to green and the light in the canyons is amazingly luminous. This is the western side of the monocline, called the Waterpocket Fold. We drove down to Lake Powell on the eastern side on the road shown on the national park link, meeting only a few cars and a park ranger who was on the look out for big game hunters coming illegally within the park boundaries.
