We traveled to Capitol Reef in the summer of 2019. This park will amaze you by its history as well as its landscapes. The land it occupies was home to people for thousands of years even before the Mormon pioneers arrived in the 1800s.
We were truly amazed by how big the landscapes are in this park. I truly felt as if I had jumped into a cowboy western movie. I highly recommend visiting this park if for nothing else its sheer magnitude. Humans feel how little and insignificant they are compared to the magnificence of God.
