    One of my favorite places on earth. That, and all of the wilderness around it. If only I could live there again.... Shakespeare in Cedar City, afternoon at Cedar Breaks, picnic dinner on an alpine ridge - what a place!

1. Much smaller than Bryce but worthwhile; admission only $4 compared to $25 at bryce
2. two main hikes; one around alpine pond [lower trail is more difficult but better views]; the other more challenging one is to rampats overlook or you can just go up to spectra point [great views]
3. small visitor center has great views from windows
4. is on the way to bryce canyon national park is driving from I-15 from las vegas or salt lake city
5. restrooms only in visitors center
6. i went in september but apparently road is closed due to snow in winter
