Staying in Vegas, we decided to visit the South rim of the Grand Canyon. Checking Google maps, my husband saw a lush green area that was an hr closer. The drive was very scenic & the destination was breath taking. You'll need a vehicle with a strong engine to make the climb. The elevation was over 10,000 ft. The forest... More

Red Canyon is a wonderful place to hike and dog-friendly too. We didn't see another human being on our hike. I prefer Red Canyon to Bryce.

Dixie National Forest is a perfect example of the definition of color country. The rock formations are incredible to see. They change with the movement of the sun.

I bought a Polaris Rzr side by side, and have been exploring the trails through the Dixie National Forest. Wonderful trails, and amazing scenery. The color changes are awe inspiring. There are also a lot of places to explore by car, and wonderful hiking opportunities.

Beautiful views are abundant. Weather absolutely perfect. Clean streets all over the town. Good lunch at Marks Deli, too much too for very reasonable price. ATV's galore. Lots of shopping for a little town.

You have to wonder what this place looked like while ridding a horse through here in the 1800`s.There is plenty of wildlife to see and the views change depending on where you are in National Forrest.

So beautiful and vibrant. It goes for a few miles on your way to Bryce Canyon. Stop in at the Rangers visitor center . Cool apparel to buy that supports the park.
