Sand Hollow Park

My next destination after leaving Natural Bridges National Monument was beautiful Sand Hollow State Park about 15 miles from St George in the southwest corner of the state. With its warm, clear, blue waters and lined by eroded orange-red sandstone, the reservoir reminded me of a miniature version of Lake Powell, one of my favorite places in Utah.

It has amazing diversity with wide, sandy beaches, a causeway to the west and a black, and volcanic mesa to the northeast. In the distance, across the flat, open surroundings, are several mountain ranges including the steep-sided Pine Valley Mountains, the Hurricane Cliffs, and the White Cliffs of Zion National Park.
