Waterpocket Fold, seen in the distance, is a 100 mile long, 65 million year old, warp in the earth’s crust that is partly contained in Utah’s Capital Reef National Park.
Scientists believe it is possible that the same collision of continental plates that caused this fold, here seen more closely, also created the Rocky Mountains.
The history held within the earth beneath our feet!
