    Very interesting and simple. The first episode of the Gorge we continue by car, then just for parking are pre-Columbian petroglyphs. A little further away you can admire the Pioneer Register, which is carved in the rock, or even the names of the fired once through the Gorge. A further hike will lead us to the exit of the Gorge, but if zboczymy with appropriate sign, we can walk to The Tanks, which is interesting-looking, small eworsyjnych kettles. This piece is definitely heavier and in my opinion, requires proper footwear.

    The video in the visitor center explained how the tanks are made. Persevere up the scramble trail to the Tanks and enjoy a restful few minutes before heading back.  more »

Where to stay in Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef National Park does not offer lodging beyond its campground, so many visitors opt to stay in the town of Torrey just to the west along Route 24. Economy motels, some of which are part of national chains and others of which are locally owned, dominate the list of options, but a few inns and bed and breakfasts are available too. Torrey has a couple of dining establishments, adding to the convenience of staying here. You'll also find a few motels between the town and the park entrance.
