Day 4: Snow Canyon

We couldn’t spend more than a day down in Southern Utah without going hiking again. And the weather was so great, it would almost be a sin not to. This time, we visited Snow Canyon State Park. In any other state, this would probably be a national park, but because Utah already has so many, I suppose a state park will do. Starting out at the Petrified Dunes Trail, we spent the morning wandering around the dunes, checking out the 360 degrees of amazing red rocks, and for the kiddos, a treasure hunt.

We were all hungry, so we stopped for lunch at the sand dunes. Which was proceeded by jumping off of the large sand hill, to see how far and high we could get. We also may or may not have seen evidence of dinosaurs. I don’t think I will ever get over how stunning the Utah desert is. Covered in sand and red rocks, and yet still full of life from beautiful flowers.

Of course, no trip to St. George would be complete without a trip to Nielsen’s Frozen Custard. If you haven’t been there, trust me, you’ll want to make a pit stop there and get you some of that goodness. Don’t be fooled by my niece’s face, she was so happy to be eating that custard! She just didn’t want to pose for a picture. I can’t blame her.
