The Red Rocks of Southern Utah


I love the red rocks of St. George!  They are so beautiful!

After 3 weeks of playing ball….. we stopped in St. George again on our way home.  It’s Homecoming weekend at Dixie College and they are celebrating 100 years in existence.   The Program Bureau friends that my husband made while he was attending college down here try to get together every year.  This year they tried to put a little more effort into the organizing of it to coincide with the 100 year celebration.  So we stopped on our way home to Salt Lake to participate in some of those activities.

We started our day by meeting some friends for breakfast and then decided to go for a drive.  John wanted to do a little hiking on a trail that is just above some homes right off of Snow Canyon Parkway.  Even though his back was hurting, he wanted to ‘move’ a little and give it a try.  It wasn’t too bad of a walk.  In fact, the beautiful red rock mountain almost created natural stairs for us in it’s formation.  It’s amazing to me the formation these rocks have taken.

When we got to the top it was an incredible view!  My goal is to soon have a home down here with a similar view.  I would love to wake up every morning and look out the window to this spectacular scenery down here!  I’m constantly amazed and intrigued by the geography that is in this beautiful desert.  It almost makes me want to take a geology class to learn about how the formations were made.

I’m so grateful for this beautiful state I live in.  It is so diversified by it’s landscape…. all within several hundred miles.  How lucky we are to live close enough to easily come enjoy this lovely red desert of St. George and yet within a few hours be home to our beautiful Rocky Mountains!  It’s a great place to live!

I am Grateful!  How are you?
