Four Points Bulletin

Travels north, east, south, and west of our Oceanside home base.

Cedar Breaks National Monument is surrounded by the Dixie National Forest. The Southern Paiute called this area the Circle of Painted Cliffs. In winter, the Cedar Breaks Amphitheater, filled with fins, hoodoos and arches, is dusted with snow, highlighting the vibrant red and orange colored sedimentary rock.

Most of the park is closed in winter, except to people partaking in winter sports, but North View Overlook is one of the best views in the park, so we are satisfied with our chilly, New Years Day visit.

Four Points pointer- In order to get here from Duck Creek it is necessary to drive around to the northern section of the 148, since the 148 that runs through the park is not plowed.

  1. Beautiful pics!! Especially love the squishy little snowman…Did the three of you make it, or was it made previously by other visitors? Glad youโ€™re having so many new and exciting adventures!!! Looking forward to seeing more…..๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

    1. Ha. Eric said the snowman looked like Jabba the Hutt (from Star Wars). I think he has a lot of character!
      There were a few other people around. Like two cars.

    I love the spectacular effect the snow has as it dusts the red rocks. WOW. There are some fabulous photos there. You three are getting around. Are you keeping track of how many National Parks/Monuments you’ve visited. Extensive list, I’m certain. Well done, you travelers.

    1. The visitor center is only open during summer so we couldnโ€™t get a passport stamp. But maybe we will know someone going and they can get a stamp for us! Tomorrow we will go to Bryce Canyon NP. It will be A1โ€™s first visit!
