A smaller version of Bryce Canyon, this 2,500-foot deep basin filled with strange limestone formations in a vivid array of colors and hues offers breathtaking views on a five-mile drive along the rim. This naturally formed amphitheater has guided walks in the summer and a few designated hiking trails.

Well worth the couple of miles out of your way to see. We got to see a weasel that had turned white for the winter.

Clear December afternoon...all facilities were closed, as was any entry fee. Stunning scenery well worth a 2+ hour detour off I-15. Just do it if you can!

A short drive from Cedar City up to beautiful views. Worth the quick side trip. We are always amazed by the beautiful colors and textures.

You don’t have to ski. We came up from seeing the petroglyphs and saw the fire damage on the way to Brian Head. We had a lovely drive up and yes we huffed and puffed a bit!
