ever-changing from gray and white to shades of red with
the day's mood. Numerous rocks and coves offer solitude,
quiet and unique desert beauty. Nearby attractions include
Bryce Canyon National Park, Grosvenor Arch, Paria Canyon,
movie sets and ghost town remains. Opportunities include
hiking, biking, photography and nearby off-highway vehicle
