Fremont River - Capitol Reef National Park

The waters of the Fremont River create an oasis of sorts in the striking desert landscape of Capitol Reef Naitonal Park in South Central Utah. The seemingly out of place black rocks strewn along the stream banks are relatively recent geologic arrivals from regions to the west. Larger boulders of similar black rock are scattered around the park.

This scene is downstream from the river's confluence with Sulphur Creek. - Martin van Hemert
