Hiking Snow Canyon | Utah’s red rocks

ImageImage

I’ve shared tidbits from Utah here and here, but one of my favorite activities during our time in St. George was the hike in Snow Canyon. The rocks are bright red and grip to your shoes like Velcro. The canyon is filled with plants and white sand. The rocks are alive, and you don’t want to take them home (I tried, until I put them in my backpack just before it fell apart … later I learned that many who take rocks home end up mailing them back because too many weird events start happening). So, I have these photos of these gorgeous rocks and a wonderful afternoon as the crowned princess Lyanne celebrated 50.

  1. Your photos are fantastic! I may not know you, but I’m pretty jealous of your trip.
    You’re making me crave adventure even more than I already was . . . if that’s possible.
