Sunset Point

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 6 February 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

A final image from Capitol Reef National Park. It was a cloudy evening and the sunset wasn't spectacular but, I saw some of those white domes that reminded the pioneers of our nation's Capitol. We've already noted that the Waterpocket Fold reminded them of a reef. So, the name makes sense at last. Capitol Reef.
