I took so many pictures at Capitol Reef I’ve had a time narrowing down which shots to post here. The fact that it is really impossible to convey the size of these rock formations hasn’t made the process any easier. Unfortunately, images that demanded to be captured don’t seem nearly as impressive flat on the screen.
That said, I’ve enjoyed reviewing the images and processing them. Most of these shots were taken as we entered the park from the East side, before we entered the heart of the park. Although we were glad to see the fall foliage, I suspect these shots might have been even more spectacular with green trees contrasting with the cliffs.
Navaho Dome is an easily recognizable landmark.
I’ll have to admit, though, that the mesas were my favorite landmark,
possibly because they remind me of all the John Wayne westerns I saw as a kid.
Really, though, it was virtually impossible to turn around without discovering startling beautiful structures
