Snow Canyon Overlook: Spectacular Sunrise
|Two Yucca plants overlooking the majestic SnowCanyon, Utah|
This month I decided to wake up at 5 o'clock, make the drive to the parking lot and began hiking up the trail. It is about 2.5 miles one way. It is not especially difficult although in the dark, false trails could lead someone astray for a few feet here and there. I used my headlamp for the first 2 miles.as I was getting to the overlook, enough dawn light allowed me to turn off the headlamp.
I was not disappointed with the sunrise. It was very gradual, very beautiful. I love the contrast in the white sand, the red rocks and blue sky. I hope to return here again for another sunrise before too long.
