Cedar Breaks National Monument, near Cedar City, Utah, was a last minute addition to our itinerary. After we arrived in Utah on June 18, our good friend Neal suggested that we visit Cedar Breaks.
We did an internet search and found that the roads in Cedar Breaks had been opened on June 17. We also found we could include a visit to the Monument while driving to see some of the places we had planned to visit.
The elevation at Cedar Breaks varies from 10,100 to 10,500 feet. As we approached the Monument, my little bride was delighted to see snow on the mountain tops. As we drove into the park with snow piled high on both sides of the road, Betsy was like a kid in a candy shop, as you can see from the picture above.
We asked a ranger how much snow they had gotten over the winter, and he said they had 395 inches by May 31, which was the ‘official’ end of their winter season. However, it had snowed several times since then, including the day before we got there.
If you know anything at all about Betsy, you know she was excited with all that snow around. And, of course, we had to find a place where she could get out and walk in the snow. She did not, however, make a snowman for me.
