Canyon and Mountain #3292
Snow Canyon is not as stunning as Zion or Bryce, its larger national park brothers. But it is a scenic and interesting place that is certainly worth a visit.

Canyon Walls #3311
There are miles and miles of relatively easy hiking trails that wind throughout Snow Canyon State Park.

The Dam at Night
The trains run frequently and efficiently in Amsterdam, even at night.
