Light from the setting sun is cast upon the pinnacles and spires at Cathedral Valley at Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
Storm clouds appear over Cathedral Valley at Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
Cathedral Valley is in a remote section of the remote Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. You have to drive about 25 miles on a rough and rocky road from the central area of the park to get there. I hope they never build a paved road to Cathedral Valley because those who travel on the road are truly rewarded for their effort. Here’s a glimpse of the valley nearing sunset. Many more images to follow soon.
The only things missing from this cathedral-like setting are the Gargoyles!
Highway 24 is a fascinating stretch of remoteness and anomalies. I’ve never been to Mars but images of its landscape are remindful of the sandstone quirks along Highway 24.
