Great Setting For A City
June 2008....my son (Scott) and I decided to stop at Cedar Breaks after exploring the Kolob section of Zion National Park.
Cedar City is a very clean city. The population is around 26,000 and te levation is almost 6,000 feet. It is located in the Southeast portion of the Great Basin.
A lot of people use the city for an area to eat and sleep during their skiing activities at Brian Head near by.
This used to be a mining area. Obviously there is a Mormon link to the city as well.
Southern Utah University is located in Cedar City.
We wanted to see the city and I knew there would be some places to eat and a Wal Mart to get some supplies at.
I droe East to Cedar Breaks, noticing how the Bark Beetle damaged so many trees. Why can't our government find an answer for that problem??

Funny thing, at Wal Mart I was looking at the beer section. I asked a lady about Utah's 3.2 beer. She said she wan't from Utah and their car broke down. I asked her where she lived. She replied Iowa. I said that's where I am from! Small world!
