    hi there,

    The Capitol Reef National Park is one of the most famous national parks in Utah for the Waterpocket Fold, which is a 65 million year old wrinkle in the earth’s crust.

    The most scenic section of the Waterpocket Fold can be found near the Fremont River. It is known as Capitol Reef. It gets the name "capitol" because of the white domes of Navajo Sandstone that bear a striking resemblance to capitol building rotundas.

    At Capitol Reef National Park you can also do wildlife spotting. Bird species such as loons, hawks, flacons, vultures, geese, herons, grebes, egrets and pelicans can be seen throughout the area.

    Hope this helps
