Have you ever seen snow in the desert? It is different than the snow in the mountains or in the city. It makes a desolate land peaceful. The white glimmering crystals mixed with the rough red rock create a terrain of perfection.
I encourage everyone to go down to Southern Utah and view this spectacle for yourselves. A small hike or even just a drive through these memorable landscapes will remind you how awesome this environment can be and how it needs to be preserved.
If you do decide to take a hike, remember to stay on the designated trails. Even if we can’t see it, there are still sensitive areas under the snow. These areas could be crushed or destroyed by a stray boot.
