Capitol Reef National Park
Capitol Gorge Sep 77
My PhD research topic was formulated over a period of years, beginning with an extended tour of the Colorado Plateau with my buddy Steve Tetreault during the summer of 1973. We pondered the reason for the pictured overhang in the walls of Capitol Gorge in Capitol Reef National Park, pictured behind me.
Backcountry Capitol Reef
The back country of Capitol Reef contained spectacular vistas like this one, with pseudo horns and cirques reminiscent of glaciated terrain. We seldom saw any tourists in the back country.
