Snow Canyon is located near Ivins, UT near St. George.  Carved from the red and white Navajo sandstone in the Red Mountains, the park features extinct cinder cones, lava tubes, lave flows and sand dunes.

Grand Canyon is one of the true wonders of the world.  Although it is located in Arizona, it is close to the Utah border and easily a day trip for anyone in the area.  It’s a dramatic and incredible site.

Arches National Park is another day trip park.  Located near Moab, UT, it is comprised of a series of canyons and buttes.  With delicate sandstone arches throughout, it’s another impressive example of everything Southern Utah has to offer.
