Cedar Breaks National Monument

Forest flowers Cedar Breaks

Cedar Breaks National Monument was an excellent place to stretch our legs after a wonderful three days at the Utah Shakespeare Festival. We were ready for some sightseeing, and we certainly saw some beautiful vistas. The main lookout at an elevation of 10,000 feet surveys a vast amphitheatre three miles wide and 2000 feet deep of coral-red rock formations. Yes, these are the actual colors you see. I haven’t enhanced them digitally in any way.

Here are some of the wild flowers along the way to the rim. Gorgeous colors, but understated in their random asssortment.

The ranger station at Cedar Breaks is rugged and unique. Have you ever seen a rock chimney like that?
