Spent the night and following day at Snow Canyon State Park near St. George, Utah.  What an amazing little canyon, just minutes from St. George.  The day was one in which a storm from the west slowly approached, and the clouds and light were fantastic as a result.  I just hiked around, from dawn until mid-afternoon.  Beautiful.  I was hoping to see a gila monster, but it was cool.  The photo above shows the general geology, with the reddish Entrada Formation sandstones, representing petrified sand dunes, overlain by the white Navajo Sandstone, but with a fairly recent basalt lava flow overlapping and infilling low areas.  I even found a neat collapsed lava tube in the lava flow, with some interesting flow features.  Very Hawaiian looking lava I must say.
