Visited for a picnic east of Cedar City. Enjoyed the fall colors and moderately cool temps. Wildlife seen birds, squirrels and deer.

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.

I am so thankful that the United States protects beautiful places like this. It is unspoiled nature at its best. Be sure to drive though and enjoy.

We were driving in and out of DNF all the time while going to National Parks and Monuments. Enjoyed it even though it wasn’t actually on our itinerary from the beginning. Appears like it’s greatly utilized by hikers and hunters alike. Saw much wildlife and...More
