UT – Dixie National Forest . . . in search of colorful geology

After spending a couple days exploring Snow Canyon State Park, I continued my travels northeast on Interstate 15 and on to the Silver Reef area where I spent the night and was treated to this WOWtastic sunset. 

I had an equally impressive sunrise.

These roads make me nervous after rain so I was keeping my eye on the sky and felt a little nervous about proceeding. 

With blue sky in one direction and black in the other, I decided to toss the coin and hope for luck. My goal was finding some WOW geology in the Dixie National Forest and Cottonwood Wilderness areas. Isn’t geology amazing? 

Extra credit was finding early blooms.

My luck held by forcing a turnaround a bit before I wanted. Others have dug deep ruts in the road after rains.
