This overlook in Snow Canyon is capped with lava rock which flowed from now extinct cinder cones a short distance to the north, covering portions of the abundant Navajo Sandstone here and altering erosion patterns. The lava flows have created lava tubes in the area which can be explored. Snow Canyon actually seldom sees snow and was named instead after early Mormon Pioneers.
Just outside of St. George, this area is within easy driving distance of Southern Utah attractions such as Zion National Park and Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. - Martin van Hemert
