Red Canyon in Dixie National Forest was one of the highlights of our trip to NM, AZ, UT. Almost better than Bryce Canyon. It is on the way to Bryce on Route 12. This is an absolute must see!

This National Forest is a real gem. Gorgeous Aspen forest growing around huge meadows. There are also some ancient lava flows that add to the color palette. Duck Creek Campground is one of the most beautiful campgrounds I have ever seen.

We drove through Dixie National Forest and couldn't take our eyes off the towering pines and beautiful yellow hues of the quaking aspen leaves with their stark white trunks. The night before it had snowed a couple of inches which just added to the beauty.
