Capitol Reef National Park

Scarring across the heart of the Beehive State in a 60-mile stretch of Western-worthy outback, Capitol Reef National Park spreads over massive clefts and cuts in the crust of the planet. It’s named for the peaked domes of Navajo sandstone that loom like the tops of US capitol buildings throughout the preserve. Other features include enormous walls of red rock and dark and shady gorges. Strangely, there’s also a small oasis of orchards in the midst of it all; clusters of almond and pear trees once planted by the pioneers.
