Located in Utah's south-central desert Capitol Reef National Park surrounds a long wrinkle in the earth’s crust known as the Waterpocket Fold which is highlighted by layers of golden sandstone, canyons, and striking rock formations. The park's most popular sites include the Chimney Rock Pillar, the Hickman Bridge Arch, and Capitol Reef, known for its white sandstone domes, while in the north the towering monoliths of Cathedral Valley can be found.
