I finally finished processing photos from our 2016 trip to Capitol Reef National Park, the last stop in our Utah tour that included Zion, Arches, and Canyonlands National Parks, Red Cliffs National Conservation Area, and Snow Canyon & Dead Horse Point State Parks. Capitol Reef was our favorite.
The reasons are simple: uncrowded and extremely scenic. Nothing like the crowds of Grand Canyon or Zion National Park. When we go on landscape photography trips, the last thing we want is to be standing shoulder-to-shoulder with other people. We like to get away. You can (still) do that at Capitol Reef. At night, doing astrophotography, we ran into just one other person just one time. Plus the red rocks...if you like reds, the complete red pallette is waiting for you at Capitol Reef. We spent 4-5 days there and just "scratched the surface." Fantastic.
Here are some of my favorite photos from Capitol Reef
