Sand Hollow State Park
There is some nice hiking to do in Cedar Breaks and just outside the park. Here we hiked the highest elevation trail over 10K, Spectra Point and the Ramparts. Surprisingly they need these signs, even though it's obviously straight down!
The colors are fantastic. The green pines and firs against the reds, oranges and pinks.
The ancient Bristlecone Pines that live here are amazing. They are so large. Larger and more impressive than the ones we have in the Sierra Nevada in California. Twisted and gnarly, dealing with the poorest soil and wind cold conditions, some of these old trees here are over 1700 years old.
The autumn color here is just brilliant!
A window to the canyon below. Opposite the canyon is a green grass, pines & firs.
Lot's of Hoo Doo's.
Layers of color!
We enjoyed driving through the park and admiring the lovely color.
And my favorite? The red Aspen trees!
Gorgeous view from here at the other end of the park.
More moon risings!
On to Zion Park next.
