When the fall season begins not only does the weather change, but so does the natural scenery. Autumns in Utah, specifically Southern Utah, have some of the most breathtaking views. The orange and red leaves, the waterfalls, and the crisp and chilly fall air all add to the enjoyment of the season. A few of the best places to see fall foliage are Zion National Park, Kolob Canyon, Cedar Breaks National Monument, and Pine Valley Mountain. As Northern Utah gets colder and windier at this time of year, Southern Utah weather stays in the mid 60 degrees, so it is the perfect time to go for a hike and see some stunning fall scenery.

Trail Tuesday took me to the Bloomington area of St. George, Utah.  I noticed that there are beautiful homes for sale in the Bloomington area.  The homes in this area of Southern Utah seem to be very unique, one-of-a-kind homes in beautiful dessert settings.  I hiked around the hills in Bloomington and ended my hike at the Bloomington Petroglyph Park.  This park is a very small park with large boulders that have hundreds of petroglyphs on them.  The area is fenced, but there is an opening so that you can walk right up to the carvings.   There is also a bench for you to sit on to view the engravings on the beautiful boulders.
