Kodachrome Basin

We in Utah are lucky. We live in a state that has five national parks. Plus several more parks in the neighboring states (and most are less than a day away.) In fact, we are so famous for our national parks that people come from all across the globe to visit our state.

Some people even go to all five – Zion, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, Arches and Canyonlands – which, as you can imagine, is a pretty good sampling of Southern Utah. But there are still many locations, each with its own wonders, left unvisited. […]

Ski Resorts

Winter is a great season here in Southern Utah. The national and state parks are still open, and the beautiful rock formations can look even cooler in winter. But there are plenty of other exciting things to do in Utah besides look at the scenery – skiing for example. And while it may be a bit late in the season, we wanted to talk about our two favorite ski resorts in Southern Utah. […]
