Explorers, Mormon pioneers, and others began coming to the Fremont River valley in the late 1800's. No more than 10 families at a time called the valley home, but by the early 1900's the Mormon community of Fruita was know for its productive orchards. Capitol Reef National Monument, established in 1937, became a national park in1971. Farm families eventually moved on: Fruita's last private resident left in 1968.

Fine panorama with the wildflowers in the foreground, and the always attractive layered geology of Capitol Reef's geology as the main frame.
I never get tired of the West's geology and history,
Thanks for sharing,
