We spent two nights in Cedar City at the KOA and visited the Dixie National Forest, Brian Head Ski Area, Cedar Breaks, and Bryce Canyon National Park. Scenery was breathtaking... we can't wait to visit again.
This are is a typical national forest with wonderful Ponderosa pines and much recreation. We drove through, and stayed within the park in early October, and had a little snow every day. Drive a 4WD after Oct 1
Wow it is amazing to me that this natural wonder is so quick to pass by. I was amazed you drive up to them and in about 2 minutes they are gone. The formations are stunning and a must see. There are some spots to...More

Southwestern Utah was called "Dixie" by the Mormon pioneers, because it was so much warmer than Salt Lake City. This reminded the pioneers of the Southern States, which were warmer than the Northern States, and this part of Utah was to the South of Salt Lake City. But, this referred to St. George, where Brigham Young had a winter home, where he could escape the harsh winter of Salt Lake City. Dixie College is located in St.George.
Dixie National Forest, although near St. George, is at a much higher elevation, and has a winter as cold, if not colder than Salt Lake City.
