Smooth craters pock the canyon walls through Capitol Reef. Most of the rock is sandstone, which is grains of sand weakly cemented by water-soluble minerals. Where water seeps between layers, it may dissolve the cement, forming cavaties which catch more moisture. The process is ongoing, forever changing the exposed forms, shapes and color.
