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.   

Many of the carved images represent humans and animals, as well as designs and possibly early trail maps.  I looked…

I have been reading about different hot springs located in Southern Utah.  I have always wanted to visit the Meadow Hot Springs in Meadow, Utah.   This past weekend I was travelling back to my home in St. George from a fun visit to Snowbird and I found the perfect opportunity to stop and explore the hot springs.

Meadow Hot Springs is located just south of Fillmore, Utah in the quiet town of Meadow, near Kanosh.  These hot springs are a unique, natural treasure out in an open field in the area.  The hot springs are located on private property, but the landowner has made it accessible to the public.  There is a walking path that connects three different pools.    

The pools are crystal clear with the main pool getting as warm as 100 degrees.  The…

I was driving on Red Cliffs Drive the other day and a heart in a window caught my attention.  It was a bright red heart and it said Waffle Love.  I decided to give the small restaurant, in St. George, a try today.  When you walk into the place you immediately are met with the delicious smell of waffles.  Recently we tried chicken and waffles in Las Vegas and we were excited to see that was on the menu.  

The menu offers numerous specialty waffles, such as:

  • The Churro Waffle with cinnamon and sugar
  • The Cinna Love with cinnamon butter and cream cheese frosting
  • The Red Wonder with biscoff, strawberries, raspberries and cream
  • Nutella Love with Nutella, cream and your choice of fruit
  • Banana Cream Pie with chocolate, bananas and cream

I was shopping in Ancestor Square in downtown St. George and I came across the St. George Art Museum.  I wondered if there would be galleries and art museums when I moved here from the Salt Lake City area and I have found a wealth of museums and galleries throughout St. George, Washington and Hurricane, Utah. 

The mission of the St. George Art Museum is “to education all visitors through quality exhibitions from all periods, cultures, and media, as well as to collect, conserve, inventory, exhibit and interpret art and artifacts from Utah and the West”.

The St. George Art Museum is right across from the Main Street Post Office in historic downtown St. George.  The museum was formerly used as a sugar beet seed storage facility.  Now it is a…
