In later May I had to make a business trip down to St. George, Utah to visit some clients that I have there. I had a morning off, so I decided to venture out to Snow Canyon State Park on the northwest side of town. Last year one of my clients had driven me up there to show off her new area. I had been quite amazed, so I decided to make a quick morning trip to the park.
I really only had a couple of hours, and I had to figure out how to make the best use of my very short time. I figured the best thing to do was just to drive into the park and see what caught my eye. Sure enough not far in I looked over to the west of the road and saw a nice stand of yucca cactus in full bloom.
The western part of the United States has had a very cool and wet spring in 2019, and as a result the desert was unusually lush and vibrant. I figured I could just hike around in this area and photo opportunities would come to me as I relaxed and got into the whole scene. Every photo in this post was taken within 1/2 mile of where I parked my truck. I’m only showing you a tiny fraction of this park. Snow Canyon is definitely a place I will need to revisit in the future when I have more time.
Here is a small sample of some things that I was seeing that morning in late May. I hope you can enjoy the beauty that I experienced when I was in Snow Canyon.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my little photo tour of a bit of Snow Canyon State Park near St. George, Utah. As always thanks for stopping by, and I would love to know what you think of my post.
