We featured Snow Canyon State Park back in August 2002, with a view from the canyon rim overlook. The canyon lies at the juncture of three geological provinces: the Great Basin to the north; the Colorado Plateaus to the east; and the Mojave Desert to the west. This situation creates a diverse environment, which in turn hosts a diverse range of plants and animals. The natives of each of the individual provinces are unusually found together in a single location.

More details from: the State Parks service; ASW [American Southwest] where there is photo gallery; and UAA [Utah Outdoor Activities] if you are an 'out you go' visitor. Bert Sirkin has an atmospheric shot of the sand dunes, which shows critter trails.
