Why Ammon Cunningham Recommends Capitol Reef National Park

The prolific blogger and avid traveler Ammon Cunningham lives in Utah because it has always been home for him, but he’s not content to simply live there. He wants everyone else to know that his home state features some of the most magnificent scenery anywhere in the world and that means the state has many of the greatest travel destinations anywhere. One great example he loves to tell others about through his blog and through general travel advice is the magnificent Capitol Reef National Park.

Capitol Reef is about 100 miles from Canyonlands National Park, so it is possible for travelers to make it a two-fer of sorts. The main feature of Capitol Reef National Park is the wall of banded sandstone that rises like a reef from the Fremont River. That is part of what is perhaps the most impressive section of what has been named the Waterpocket Fold and it is a great example of Capitol Reef National Park’s scenery, which is almost all spectacular. The park’s scenery features canyons, of course, but also, cliff walls, arches, rock spires and gorges, all of which will make photographers jump for joy. Hikers will also find the Park irresistible. There are also many strange rock formations and chimneys that have been carved out of the rock by erosion, as well as rock paintings from the Indian Fremont culture. And it’s all easily accessible through relatively easy hikes through the park.

Ammon Cunningham on Utah’s Canyonlands National Park

As a very active travel blogger, Ammon Cunningham has many favorite travel destinations to recommend. However, he would really like everyone to know that his home, Utah, contains some of the most amazing travel destination in the world. Everyone who loves to travel and see beautiful places, for example, should head to the southeast corner of Utah and check out Canyonlands National Park, which is often referred to as the Utah Grand Canyon because many of the views are just as spectacular.

Whether it is the incredible vistas overlooking the carved canyons below, or the breathtaking the views of snowcapped mountains off in the distance, there is certainly a reason why the Park sees more than 600,000 visitors in a given year. Another reason Ammon Cunningham believes Canyonlands National Park is such a popular recreational destination in Utah because the Green River and Colorado River both run through the middle of it, and that draws recreational tourists who are looking for something exciting to do, whether it is kayaking, swimming or hiking some of the most challenging trails anywhere.
