Capitol Reef NP - Chimney Rock


Chimney Rock is a 6,420-foot tall promotory in Capitol Reef National Park, in south-central Utah, in the heart of red rock country, Capitol Reef is a hidden treasure of the National Park system; it was only added to the system as a national park in December of 1971.


The park is  filled with cliffs, canyons, domes, arches, and bridges in the Waterpocket Fold, a geologic wrinkle in the earth that runs almost 100 miles.


Chimney Rock is a landmark of the park, and I was captivated by its timeless beauty; the lone tree at the base contrasts with the weathering stone of the Rock.
