Capital Reef National Park

Capital Reef National Park is a long skinny park that follows the Waterpocket Fold.  The north area is the Cathedral Valley Area, which can be  accessed by two different rough dirt roads that are over 15 miles long.  This make this area a nice round trip on all dirt road.  This road keeps the people away and you could have the area to yourself.  You could photograph Temples of the Sun and Temples of the Moon at sunrise or sunset.  The Cathedral Valley area have some beautiful rock castles to photograph.  Upper and lower south desert overlook over photo opportunities.

The central area of the park is where the visitor center is and where most people go.  North of the visitor center is the massive Castle rock formation.    The roads are blacktop and the scenic drive will take you to the Egyption Temple, Golden Throne and a view of the Capital Dome.  You will also go past the Gifford Farm House where in July and August you can pick apples off the fruit tress.  There is also some large mule deer's that like to hang around the trees.  The Old fruita school house is in the Fruita Historical District.  There is also Pertroglyps and the Behunin cabin

The south end of the park can be accessed by Notom Bullfrog dirt road or the Burr Trail.  The best way is going south out of Torrey Utah on highway 12 which a very scenic road in itself to Boulder Utah and from there head east on the Burr Trail.  The strike Valley Overlook, up the Muley twist canyon make a nice landscape photo.
