The Adventures of Reba

Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef is a monocline, a fold or wrinkle in the earth, and the resulting rock formations are incredible! Most of southern Utah got 1-2 inches of rain in 24 hours, including Capitol Reef National Park just a couple of days before we visited. Remnants of flooding were visible and all non-paved roads within the park were closed. We wouldn’t have taken them anyway, so it wasn’t a loss to our experience, but it was interesting to see how a little rain can have such a big impact in the desert.
