    I haven't been there since 1989, back during the summer when my wife and I worked for the Utah Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City. I'd take our dog and go hiking on the weekends all over the nearby wilderness areas, including Cedar Breaks.

    Your pics are just as I remember the place, the dramatic contrast of that great vivid red-orange amphitheater of rock set against the dark green of the surrounding slopes and hills. I still remember hiking in the meadows along the Alpine Pond trail through fields of lupines. My dog met her first porcupine in the woods out along the Ramparts trail, but fortunately she was smart enough to be cautious of such a large, odd-sounding creature.

    Thanks for this and all your Tour Series diaries.

      one of the best I've ever seen and here I am addressing someone who had something important to do with Dixie's show of show. Thanks, too, for posting your comments, Stwrlley. The Alpine Pond trail, and all the others, I have hiked and inhaled the scent of flowers to the point it was almost intoxicating. Ran into a puma, too, which I love the big cats, so she and I got along (from a distance). Such a lovely, but chilly setting, the Breaks, eh?

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
