Capitol Reef National Park — 1 night

Capitol Reef National Park takes its name from a particularly rugged and scenic section of the Waterpocket Fold, a geologic "wrinkle" stretching for 160 km (100 mi) along a dry plateau surrounded by white Navajo sandstone cliffs and domes, and red canyons, buttes, and rock bridges.
On the 8th (Mon), look for all kinds of wild species at Capitol Reef National Park . On the 9th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire the landmark architecture of Fruita Schoolhouse, then don't miss a visit to Fremont Petroglyphs, then contemplate the long history of Gifford Homestead, and finally contemplate the long history of Fruita Campground.
