Snow Canyon

I took this photo last night in Snow Canyon, just outside of St. George, Utah.  It was a beautiful evening, around 7pm and the 'golden hour' enhanced the red cliffs and sand.  
 (I thought I would like this with a 'soft' background so that the yucca in the foreground would stand out, but now I'm wondering if I should have had a greater depth of field so the red cliffs would be in sharper focus.  Humm, decisions, decisions.)

Did I mention that we have just had a Casita built, which is a small vacation home?  Snow Canyon is about 10 minutes away from our Casita.  We are about 45 minutes to Zion National Park,  about 1 1/2 hours away from Las Vegas, 3 1/2 hours away from our home in northern Utah, and closer to our married kids in Arizona.  There are ATV trails everywhere, (great for RZR riding year round), and most important, there is NO snow.  This will be my 'happy place' during the winter months!
