We first visited Snow Canyon State Park a couple of winters ago while staying down the road at the Red Mountain Resort in St. George, Utah. We were on our way back to Los Angeles from our place in Eden, Utah and instead of doing the 11+ hour drive in one swoop like we usually do, we decided to chill and take our time.
St. George is a great (almost) halfway mark between LA and Eden along I-15. Zion National Park (love!) is about an hour from there, and Bryce National Park (want to go!) is about two. But from Red Mountain, Snow Canyon is a few minutes and so worth the attention.
We took Bubba on a short walk through the park and drove the rest of the way through the gorgeous southern Utah landscape of red rock and canyon foliage.
We passed the campground and made a mental note for future accommodations.
Flash forward to the summer of 2018. With trailer in tow on our way to Eden, we arrived minutes before the parked closed at 10 p.m. Lucky for us, it wasn’t hard to back into our spot and we didn’t have to unhitch the trailer to get set up.
With the blocks and stabilizers down and the power hooked up, we settled down for some of the red lentil/sweet potato stew thing I made the day before we got on the road.
The night was still warm after reaching over 100 during the day. Shout out to our AC unit for keeping us cool until the temperature outside dipped to comfortable!
In the morning, we were greeted by the park's beauty.
Snow Canyon is a place we’ll return to at some point in the cooler future!
