We drove through at several points. Roads were well maintained. The snow added to the beauty of the trees.

Drove through Dixie National Forest on the way to Bryce Canyon from Zion Park. As with most of the scenery in the southwest Utah area, it is ever changing and spectacular. Hard to get from one place to another (time wise), as I'm constantly stopping for photos. :-) Wish I had more time to go into some of the hiking... More

We stopped here on the way to Zion, this gave us a glimpse of how amazing the National Parks of Utah are! A lot of people stop here as it is free (unlike Zion) and its worthwhile

This is very exciting if you are outdoors person, of which we are. Re Canyon, Panguitch Lake, and Boulder Mountain have year round activities, like hiking biking fishing and picnicking and so much more. I love the different species of birds. I am not good in a canoe so I didn't do that . This is also located in Utah,... More

Dixie National Forest is the beauty surrounding the area, including Red Canyon. Take some time to stop and enjoy- there are trails and excellent paved bike paths in this area too.

From scrub oak and juniper to fir, spruce and aspen groves dotted with meadows, lava fields, red rock, lakes and streams give this forest plenty of attractiveness. Summer and winter playground for hiking, fishing, ATV and snow machines, camping, vistas on every bend!

Drove up to the caves, these are really lava tubes you can crawl through. This was fun for myself and my wife, the girls didn't care for it much though. Then we went horse back riding everyone loved it. Saw a lot of wildlife and some awesome views.

This vast, oddly named forest includes great natural beauty with numerous well-maintained trails. The nearby Cedar Breaks National Monument is a sometimes overlooked gem.
