Hi everyone. We close the day at Capitol Reef NP with a more sedate wander round the more accessible locations but still taking in the wonderful views and scenes around us:

1. Water Fold



2. Layers; It's All About Layers



3. Moenkopi, Chinle and Clouds



4. Cool Dude


This was absolutely fascinating; it was a cross between a skateboard and a Segway and relied upon him charging as it was used; downhill clearly gave him a big charge but we also saw him going uphill as well later that afternoon. A great way to see the park in complete silence and no emissions!

5. Tranquility at Fruita



6. Orchard Visitor



7. Freemont River Runs Through Here



8. Seeding Body


If anyone knows what plant this is I'd love to find out - fascinating structure and so large as well.

9. The Castle and The Flag



10. Is That Really Chimney Rock...?



11. Sundown at Capitol Reef



It's actually quite hard to convey what a beautiful place this actually is; yes, it has all the grandeur one expects but there are also lots of hidden delights (again, the rock formations close up one could spend days looking at and photographing their almost surreal appearance) and we barely scratched the surface of what is there from a trail/hiking perspective. Just one favour to ask - don't all go at once and spoil it...

Thanks for looking and comments, as always, very welcome.

Best regards,

Neil.

A very fine set of images, Neil!

The rock formations are, again, impressive - #1 and #2 stand out in this respect. My two other favorites in the set are #11 with which you have caught a wonderful sunset mood - and #5: the contrast between the immense structure of rocks in the background and the browsing horse on the meadow is just magical!

A great collection! TFS!

Another wonderful armchair trip for those of us who've not been there.
Remarkable landscape and geology, and so strikingly photographed and presented.
My favourites are #2 and #11.

The contrast between dry and green is well seen in #5. The last shot may benefit from upping the dark foreground imo. TFS Neil    .
