A giant, sinuous wrinkle in the earth`s
crust stretches for 100 miles across south central Utah.
This impressive buckling of rock, created by the same
tremendous forces, that built the Colorado Plateau 65
million years ago, is called the Waterpocket Fold.
Capitol Reef National Park preserves the fold and its
spectacular, eroded jumble of colorful cliffs, massive
domes, soaring spires, stark monoliths, twisting canyons
and graceful arches. But the Waterpocket Fold country is
more than this. It is also the free flowing Fremont River
and the big desert sky. It is cactus, jay, lizard,
jackrabbit, juniper, columbine and deer. It is a place
where Indians hunted and farmed for more than 1000 years
and, later, where Mormon pioneers settled to raise their
families. It is the inspiration for poets, artists,
photographers, and those who seek only to re-create
themselves in the solitude and splendor of its vastness.
The Reef`s haunting landforms can be explored on the 25
mile scenic drive - highlights on the way are Panorama
Point, Chimney Rock, Castle, Capitol Dome, Petroglyphs,
Hickman Bridge, Cassidy Arch, Golden Throne, Egyptian
Temple or the Mormon built Old Fruita Schoolhouse.
