The San Rafael Swell is a large anticline, a geologic feature of approximately 75 miles (121 km) by 40 miles (64 km), located entirely within Emery County in south-central Utah. The feature consists of sandstone, shale, and limestone that was pushed up during the Laramide orogeny. Erosion has sculpted the exposed sedimentary rocks into scenic valleys, canyons, gorges, mesas and buttes. Portions of the area are protected as wilderness areas. This feature lies in the Colorado Plateau region.
