I don't know about Top of the Rockies specifically, but I usually drive the Chief Joseph and Beartooth highways (Wyoming and Montana respectively) at least once while I'm working in Yellowstone during the summers. Neither of these roads forbids trailers, and I suppose they could be driven while towing, but I wouldn't do it. The high mountain roads are notoriously narrow and winding, often with little shoulder between you and a frightening drop off a cliff. If possible, I'd recommend leaving the trailer at the campground or whatever, or just driving extra carefully in the mountains. The mountain byways are beautiful drives, but they're unforgiving, always respect them.

Capitol Reef, Waterpocket Fold, Land of the Sleeping Rainbow—all are colorful names to describe a park with many striking characteristics.

Waterpocket Fold, the main feature of the park, is the name of a 100-mile-long fold in the earth's surface. This uplift contains innumerable eroded basins or pockets that hold thousands of gallons of rainwater. These pockets of water have affected the history of humanity within the park and the flora and fauna of the region.

Entering the park from the west gives the most impressive view of the 1,000-foot-high stone barrier into which erosive forces have sculpted fascinating canyons, mesas, buttes and mazes. Once in the park, other astonishing panoramas await you.

Within a short distance of the visitor center, you will see Capitol Dome, Chimney Rock, the Goosenecks and the Egyptian Temple. Hickman Bridge, the Golden Throne and Capitol Gorge reward you after easy to moderate hikes. Prehistoric petroglyphs, the Fruita Schoolhouse, the Gifford Farmhouse and the Behunin Cabin speak of bygone eras and can be reached by car. The 20-mile round-trip Scenic Drive will take you past the Ripple Rock Nature Center and many of the park's features.

If you are seeking a remote wilderness experience, Capitol Reef has it. To the north of Route 24, dirt roads, which generally require high-clearance or 4-wheel-drive vehicles, lead into the park's north end through the heart of Cathedral Valley, an area of monolithic formations of Entrada and Curtis sandstones, some of which are 500 feet high. South of Route 24, graded roads, usually suitable for high-clearance vehicles, lead into some very fine hiking country. Besides good hiking opportunities, the southern part of the park also offers spectacular views of the folded strata of Capitol Reef and the Henry Mountains. Muley Twist Canyon is in the southern end of the park, as is Brimhall Bridge. Check with a park ranger before setting out for any of these more remote locations. Weather conditions may make the roads slick and impassable.

I made a custom essay and I found that it is located on the Waterpocket Fold in central Utah, Capitol Reef National Park offers rugged, beautiful scenery with deep and narrow canyons, spectacular vistas, great expanses of slickrock and multi-colored rock layers exposed by the massive fold in the earth's crust. Petroglyphs give evidence of the early inhabitants of the area dating back at least 10,000 years. The area also has a more recent history in evidence with the orchards and buildings from the Fruita community that was founded by Mormon pioneers in 1880.

There are literally hundreds of animal species in Black Canyon of the Gunnison.  You might see a mule deer every few minutes, but keep your eyes peeled as there's plenty more to look for.  Check out the complete list here (including Bird Species) as recorded by the Northern Colorado Plateau Network Inventory & Monitoring Program:

As you might imagine, this is a question with a lot of answers depending on who you ask.
 
"The Gunks" (short for Shawangunk Mountains) in New Paltz, NY are widely regarded as the most approachable and lively climbing area in the region, with literally hundreds of climbing routes, many more than 200 feet high.  There’s something everyone -- including non-hikers, with miles of trails, vistas, etc.  Mountains and cliffs around North Conway, NH and Eastern Maine (see Acadia National Park http://www.ohranger.com/acadia/things-do) are also very popular. 

One very good site to research for climbing routes, directions and feedback would be TheCrag.com

Enjoy, and let us know what you find along the way!
