Who recognizes this familiar winter constellation? Capitol Reef’s dark night skies allows for great stargazing. Bundle up and enjoy! #astronomy #internationaldarkskypark #wildness #publiclands #capitolreefnationalpark #darksky

Tiny house... pioneer style. The Behunin cabin along highway 24 was built in 1882. The 13 Behunins only spent one summer here before relocating closer to other pioneer families. #utahpioneers #mormonpioneers #capitolreef #history #publicland

The park has been referred to as the land of the sleeping rainbow due to the 19 colorful rock layers. This day has rocks and rainbows! #nofilter #publicland #nationalpark #sleepingrainbow #rainbow #capitolreefnationalpark

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
