Capitol Reef National Park is located in south-central Utah. The sedimentary layers are tilted due to tectonic activity. Sedimentary rocks are laid down horizontally in a basin. The layers become tilted due to tectonic processes such as folding and faulting and compression and tension. The sedimentary layers are made of sandstone, limestone and some volcanic ash.
