Waterpocket Fold
Photo By John Donofrio

  • Title: Waterpocket Fold
  • State/Province/Region: Utah
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Capitol Reef National Park
  • Nearest Town: Boulder, UT
  • Brief Directions: From the town of Boulder on Utah Route 12 head west on the Burr Trail - a mostly paved route that climbs to "the post". Turn left on the dirt road signed for Muley Twist Canyon and park at the end of the road. The trail to the rim heads steeply up to the east, climbing out of the canyon. In places, it is indistinct but marked with cairns.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: The Waterpocket Fold is a gargantuan geological faeture running through Capitol Reef National Park in Utah. Although it is spectacular, it is very hard to photograph due to its immense size. In several previous trips to Capitol Reef I had tried a variety of locations to capture this convoluted geology, without much success. On this occasion, I was actually after a different subject - Muley Twist Canyon - but thought that I'd climb to the rim as the light was interesting. Success at last!
  • Gear: Canon 5D, Canon L Series 70-200mm
