We traveled from Pahrump, Nevada through the corner of Arizona up to St. George, UT. The cliffs of the Virgin River gorge are high as the green river snakes along the highway at the bottom, then the scenery begins to turn into the red rock formations of Utah.

We are staying at St. George Western Horizons in Hurricane about 10 miles past St. George. The view from our rig is snow capped mountains and red cliffs. While here we hiked the local trails along Red Cliffs Recreation Area and Quail Creek State Park Reservoir. The reservoir is deep blue surrounded by red rock formations.

The resort is mostly Canadians waiting for the weather to warm before heading home from their wintering in the south, and they gave us tips on traveling north. We visited the beautiful St. George Elks Lodge which backs up to bright red rock cliffs, and is decorated with statues and plaques honoring Veterans. The lodge is surrounded by gorgeous rock formations that can be viewed from their lounge patio.
