As you drive down and off of Bolder mountain you enter Capitol Reef National Park. The Reef is a large block of rock tipped at an angle and standing way up into the air for many miles.┬áThe Reef is cut by several rivers and washes. When the rain falls these can be very dangerous places because no rain will seep into the ground — it all runs off eastward through a few cuts penetrating the Reef.
