On par with our usual tradition of planning a little adventure before the Outdoor Retailer show, we hit the road to see a few of the many places in Utah we still had yet to explore. This trip, we found dinosaur tracks and ancient petroglyphs at Parowan Gap, and had a fun day trip through Cedar Breaks National Monument.
We had heard that Cedar Breaks was like a “mini Bryce Canyon”, and as soon as we hit Chessemen Ridge Overlook, the resemblance was obvious. After taking in that spectacular view, we headed up the road for a quick hike along Alpine Pond trail, where I spent (probably way too much) time watching the bees keep busy on the various flowers along the trail. Our hike was shortened by the sound of thunder in the distance, and were grateful to be cozy & safe in our car when a massive hail storm blew over us!
