Flooding and temporal waterfalls in the park with all today’s, and this weekend’s, rain. Be safe. Don’t enter canyons in times of heavy rain. #flashflood #raininthedesert #publicland #nationalparks #capitolreefnationalpark

Capitol Reef became a monument in 1937 by presidential proclamation. Check out the old map. Did anyone visit while it was monument? If so, what changes have you noticed? #publicland #capitolreefnationalpark #nationalparkservice

This clever canine was spotted by Ripple Rock Nature Center. Coyotes are highly adaptable omnivores and part of the ecological web of life at the Reef. #publicland #wildlifephotography #wilddogs #nationalparks
