Capitol Reef National Park, Kodachrome Utah State Park

Capitol reef national park

The first thing you see just inside the park is this aptly named formation; Twin Rocks!

Millions of years of sediment and sand, just amazing!
Amazing views in every direction!

These formations make our F350 look like a mini-truck!


We took this dirt road to Cassidy Arch Trail. Butch Cassidy purportedly used this place as a hideout.

More roadside Mother Nature “rock art”
There was also an abandoned Uranium mine from the 1950’s!

Chimney Rock is one of the first formations you see here. If you look closely at the photos from 1949 on this sign, it doesn’t look much different! (Unlike us humans from 1949!)
It seems strange that this monolith is out in the middle of the field away from the rest of the rock formations.
Some other formations seemed somehow familiar 🙂
These were everywhere! It’s no wonder the Mormons have so many kids!

The Yuccas were still blooming.

And, of course, they have dead trees too!
Even the dead trees have beautiful patterns and colors just like the rock formations.
And for my Gin loving friends (TOM!) Juniper berries were plentiful!
