“Capitol Reef National Park is in Utah’s south-central desert. It surrounds a long wrinkle in the earth known as the Waterpocket Fold, with layers of golden sandstone, canyons and striking rock formations. Among the park’s sights are the Chimney Rock pillar, the Hickman Bridge arch, and Capitol Reef, known for its white sandstone domes. In the north are the towering monoliths of Cathedral Valley.” ― Google

“What one thinks of any region,
while traveling through,

is the result of at least three things:
what one knows,
what one imagines,
and how one is disposed.”

— Barry Lopez

The universe carved
A statue sculpted by time
Beauty without eyes.

Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit,

and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.

Capturing The Moment — Threatening Clouds In Capitol Reef National Park   Leave a comment

Capitol Reef (1 of 1)-22 framedThreatening Clouds In Capitol Reef National Park Image by kenne

I can feel the dewpoint rising

In the heat of the desert plateau day.

Wildflowers sprinkled on the red dirt,

Dark clouds change the backdrop

To the massive Navajo sandstone dome

Wakening both demons and angels

In this inspirational land

Where roughed cliffs are called reefs.

Located in the hear of Utah’s canyon country, this picturesque national park stretches for 100 miles. However, our time in this beautiful park was brief as we traveled 20 miles of Utah 24 through the northern part of the park on our way to Moab. Most of the photos I took were in the Hickman Natural Bridge area, which I will be sharing in a future posting.
