3D glasses

This website is an image tour of Capitol Reef National Park. All pictures were taken in early June 2003. The 3D images are anaglyphs and require red and cyan 3-D (anaglyph) viewing glasses. A search on the World Wide Web will yield many sites about anaglyphs and where to get 3D glasses.
