Snow Canyon State Park

Over Easter the offspring and I headed back down to Southern Utah to do a bit of exploring.  This year we are planning on visiting all the National Parks in Utah and as many State Parks we can, as well.  For this trip we didn’t have quite as much time since we had a holiday and a birthday to include.  We decided to check out Snow Canyon because it was just a short drive from where we were staying and full of easy hikes for...
