Fall in Dixie National Forest

A few months before I returned to my hometown, I made a list of places I hadn’t seen or wanted to see with a pair of grown up eyes. Although most places revolved around hiking or potential trips to Las Vegas and southern California, one specific location was Dixie National Forest. Luckily, I didn’t have to go very far since this forest surrounds the majority of my current residence. A drive up the canyon and I was in my desired destination. Although it was too cold to hike, I decided to save that for another time and soak up the autumn scenery. A few photos below will show you why I didn’t regret continuing my drive.

Seeing these places as an adult only made me admire them even more than I remember as a child. I can still see the photo of my sister and me with our beagle Snoopy and driving through Brianhead, I recall memories of hot chocolate and my first and only snowboarding lesson. I’m beginning to believe the old adage is true: You can leave somewhere, but it never really leaves you.
