Capital Reef National Park

Over the last few years I've passed by this park each and every time while riding highway 24. This was my first visit to Capital Reef National Park. Unfortunately it was a quick visit since it was raining today. I hope to ride through here the next time I’m in the area.

Dalton took this picture and the one below it, the rain hasn't started yet at this point

Amazing views - you can't see this stuff from highway 24

The curvy road through the park, below is the same spot but zoomed in

Colorful canyons, ridges, buttes, and monoliths

The pavement ends at Capital Gorge

We ended up hiding from a thunder storm at these covered picnic shelters

The sun came out for a brief few minutes between rain clouds
