These are photos of Snow Canyon State Park in St. George, Utah. The park offers a few very nice dayhikes through reddish-orange sandstone hills and mountains, black lava rocks and boulders, and a few lava tube caves. The park is located within about an hour of Zion National Park and makes a nice diversion for those that travel frequently to this part of the U.S. This is a destination well worth a day of hiking to see.
