Snow Canyon State Park
Contrary to its name, winter visitors will rarely find any "white stuff" at this 7,400-acre desert park. Named after Lorenzo and Erastus Snow, early Utah leaders, Snow Canyon offers 16 miles of hiking trails, technical rock climbing, horseback riding, year-round camping, nature studies, wildlife viewing, and photographic opportunities galore. All of this is set against a stunning backdrop of towering sandstone cliffs in red and white, and peaks and valleys of jumbled black lava rock interspersed with serpentine sandy washes.For more information go to stateparks.utah.gov/parks/snow-canyon.
 
Bryce Canyon
Bryce Canyon, which is only about a 1hr and 30 min drive from Brian Head, is famous for its worldly unique geology. It consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The erosional force of frost-wedging and the dissolving power of rainwater have shaped the colorful limestone rock of the Claron Formation into bizarre shapes, including slot canyons, windows, fins, and spires called "hoodoos".

Grand Canyon
A powerful and inspiring landscape, Grand Canyon overwhelms our senses through its immense size. Unique combinations of geologic color and erosional forms decorate a canyon that is 277 river miles (446km) long, up to 18 miles (29km) wide, and a mile (1.6km) deep. The South Rim is the most accessible part of the park and is open all year, averaging 7000 feet/ 2134 m above sea level. For more information go to www.nps.gov/grca/index.htm
