Trio on the run, drove down from Upper Antelope Canyon, once again not knowing what to expect, there it was a stunning Nature's creation, Utah seemed a gifted State, never short of fascinating wonders, couldn't help wondering how and what actually created this truly amazing place on Earth! One has to see it to believe!!

Okay, there's not masses here, but what an absolute gem! I was more awe inspired with this than the Grand Canyon, but probably only because you could get a proper feel for the place. The location is quite simply stunning and it's amazing to see where the river has cut through the stone. It's only a short drive off the... More

As we were on the short trail to the overlook a young woman headed out said that the best view in the park was ahead. As we were just beginning to explore Capitol Reef we took her word for it. Turns out she was absolutely correct. Don't miss this view, especially in the afternoon when the light would be best!

Just drive a little farther on the bumpy dirt road...the view is worth it! The short hike to the view is not long or difficult at all.

Turn off 24 before entering Capitol Reef at the sign. Be sure to not just drive and walk to the overlook but go back on dirt road that leads to Gooseneck Overlook. It is one of so many geologic spectacles to look down that canyon. Great park for photography.

How many rock formations can impress someone with no geological knowledge? Millions. Surprisingly each site offers something new.
