Overview of this Site
Capitol Reef National Park is located along the axis of the Captitol Reef.
This reef isn't a coral reef but rather a barrier to transportation. In
this area the course participants will look at Permian and Triassic rocks
exposed in canyons within the park and will use information they collect
to determine how the Permian and Triassic rocks in this area are different
from those in Canyonlands.
To get to Capitol Reef from Arches National Park travel north from Arches
on Highway 191. Head west on I-70, and then south on Highway 95 to Hanksville.
From Hanksville head west on Highway 24 into the Park.
