Go Hike, As Soon As The Snow Stops

A major storm is pounding Utah right now and it is expected to bring welcome snow to our mountain areas. It has the potential to produce heavy rain in southern Utah, and has prompted a flood watch in the St George area.

Mountain roads statewide will be wet and may have snowpacked spots. Crews anticipated the storm and will be busy all night plowing and salting road surfaces. If you are traveling tonight or tomorrow morning, take care and check local reports for the latest projections.

As the storm passes, ski enthusiasts will hit the resorts to enjoy the new snow. Me, I prefer sunshine and so I'll be hiking in southern Utah's red rock country.

There is still plenty of opportunity to hike in mild conditions in southern Utah. Daytime temperatures are expected to climb into the upper 48s next week in Moab, and into the mid 60s next week in St George. Very nice conditions for desert hiking.

I was at Goblin Valley State Park a couple weeks ago and we enjoyed hiking in warm sunshine. Here's a video clip showing my trip.

    Goblin Valley is one place in Utah I haven't been that I am dying to see and experience, thanks for sharing.
