Temple of the Moon

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Jeff Badger

A predawn drive into Capitol Reef's Lower Cathedral Valley resulted in an unlikely and fortuitous view. As the sun rose, the moon dipped low over the landscape—nestling, for a brief moment, into a great sandstone monolith known as the Temple of the Moon.

Location: Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
