Cedar Breaks Utah : July 6, 2006

Cedar Breaks is near Cedar City, Utah. The park is about an hours drive from St. George our RV Park. We got up early and arrived as the park was opening and planned to spend a day viewing, hiking and taking pictures. Once at Cedar Breaks, you drive on a scenic route that climbs up to an altitude of about 10,000 feet. The scenic drive took us through forests and meadows and at that high altitude, it was cool, which we appreciated as a reprieve from the hot summer temperatures. From the many roadside overlooks, you get different views of Cedar Breaks as you look down into the red cliff formation aptly named the Amphitheater. From these overlooks, you see fantastic displays of eroded cliffs with all sorts of hoodoos and sculpted shapes. We hiked 2 miles on the Alpine Pond trail to see the wildflowers and then another 4 miles along the rim of the Amphitheater. We were not disappointed and enjoyed another great day of hiking!
