Okay - check out the Australia movie the Castle. Google the serenity. Stopping at the pull over of the Dixie Park sign, take in the ‘serenity’. I imagined it, I loved it, I will never forget it. It’s a 5 min stop - please don’t...More
Don't much care for Yellow or Orange as colours go - BUT this personal dislike did not detract as I marvelled at the beauty that nature had created. A very unusual & very beautiful landscape. We were both blown away with what we saw before...More

Southwestern Utah was called "Dixie" by the Mormon pioneers, because it was so much warmer than Salt Lake City. This reminded the pioneers of the Southern States, which were warmer than the Northern States, and this part of Utah was to the South of Salt Lake City. But, this referred to St. George, where Brigham Young had a winter home, where he could escape the harsh winter of Salt Lake City. Dixie College is located in St.George.
Dixie National Forest, although near St. George, is at a much higher elevation, and has a winter as cold, if not colder than Salt Lake City.
