Vacations of the Past – St. George Utah

In honor of our upcoming vacation I will be posting pictures of past vacations for the next few weeks. This year we’re headed to Canada for a taste of Europe close to home.

I had a renewed appreciation for water and lush landscape once I returned from the desert back to Ohio. The photos here are outside of St. George, Utah.

A summer evening in St. George, Utah

Phil and I especially enjoyed speaking to Sheri at the Split Rock Gallery who introduced us to beautiful art, high end architecture and Snow Canyon.

American Earth Rim

 .

Leopard print hills are just

out in the Mohave desert

south and east of Las Vegas.

.

To the north of The Rim

sits St. George among steeples

of church and mountain.

.

Many times a year eighteen 

galleries open to the night 

to be closed by curfew.

.

Architects build on black lava rock

just beneath the peaking faces

of snow canyon

the quilted hills

diminish a climbing figure and crawl

slowly back into a covered earth.

Just miles away from the spotted hills

stained south of The Rim.
