Capitol Reef National Park
Christene send me another card in case I didn't receive the big one. Such generous her, I received both.
Capitol Reef National Park comprises 378 square miles of colorful canyons, ridges, buttes, and monoliths. About 75 miles of the long up-thrust called the Waterpocket Fold, extending like a rugged spine from Thousand Lake Plateau southward to Lake Powell, is preserved within the park boundary. Capitol Reef is the name of an especially rugged and spectacular part of the Waterpocket Fold near the Fremont River.
The Temple of the Sun & Moon stands illuminated, as the day fades away.
