St George, Utah

St. George is one of my favorite cities.  It is called The Utah Dixie.  You can do any type of activity here and the scenery is beautiful.  But that’s not all the reasons we love it.  Walter and Cathy Bankston, the lovely blonde next to me and the dashing gentleman next to her are two of our favorite people.  We met them on a cruise almost nine years ago and became friends.  Love them so much.  Then they introduce us to Jan (next to Walter) and Kerry Henderson (next to Ralph) and now we love them too!  Ralph and I would have stayed longer but we had to keep moving northward.

Quail Creek State Park.   Looks like a big lake to me so I don’t know why it has creek in the name.   I guess I could google it but I just didn’t want to.   It is a 600 acre reservoir and has some camping sites right at the lake.

There are statues all over town so I picked out some of my favorites.

My favorite statue.

St. George Temple. It was the first temple built in Utah after the arrival of the Mormon pioneers, and was dedicated in early 1877.
St. George Tabernacle. The clock below the tabernacle spire was built by the Thwaites and Reed, the oldest clockmakers in the world and the company responsible for maintaining Big Ben.

Tuacahn Amphitheatre is located in the mouth of the Padre Canyon,  next to Snow Canyon State Park,  in Ivins, Utah.  It is a magical place where you can see plays, concerts, just about anything there.

There was a group of children performing. So much fun!
