Capitol Reef can actually be seen very well without ever getting out of the car.  Of course, a good hike is a lot more fun, and the Park has many.  One went up a stream bed, another to an arch, a third to Golden Throne and a fourth to the Chimney.  There was one to an arch that I sort of saw, but it was icy and I really was spooked by the terrain.  This place is hard to get to, but if one does Arches and Canyonlands, it ought to be attempted!
