"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Cedar Breaks Nat. Mon.

We took a drive out West of Panguitch, UT to visit Cedar Breaks.  A smaller version of the landscape one sees at Bryce.  Located at a slightly higher elevation, there was still some snow on the ground, and a cold wind was blowing.

Sally even found a snow bank to play in.

The official opening wasn’t until Memorial Day, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves.

Since Sally had so much fun playing in the snow, we thought we would drive off the main road and let her run some more.  Seems the snow we found had a soft crust and we both were leaving postholes in it.  She didn’t appreciate being up to her belly, and headed for the truck.

Saw an unusual sign just out from Panguitch on the way up.  Appears many folks miss the turn for Hwy 89, in town.
