Colorado Plateau: Alien Landscapes of Capitol Reef
USA, Colorado Plateau: the Alien Landscapes of Capitol Reef
Visiting Capitol Reef National Park is like visiting Mars. A giant, sinuous wrinkle in the earth's crust stretches for 150 km across southern Utah, surrounded by massive domes and a jumble of colourful cliffs. In autumn the splendour is further heightened by the brilliant yellow leaves of the cottonwood trees in the nearby valleys of the Escalante and the Fremont.
