Petrified Dunes
Photo By Jeff Dye

  • Title: Petrified Dunes
  • State/Province/Region: Utah
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Washington County
  • Nearest Town: St. George, Utah
  • Brief Directions: From Los Angeles I-15 north to St. George. Bluff St. off-ramp (south end of town). Turn left. There's a north and south entrance to the park. The north has less traffic congestion and has a nice view as one descends into the canyon.
  • GPS Longitude: 113.6477378
  • GPS Latitude:
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: Snow Canyon State Park is a short drive from St. George, Utah. I've always preferred the Petrified Dune area towards the north end of the park. I arrive before sunup, climb to the top of the dunes, and get set up for sunrise. The dune area provides unlimited foreground designs and patterns for deep scenic compositions. A good rain will fill the dune's potholes as shown in this photograph. Summer can be extremely hot. My photo time in the summer is done by 8:30AM. All other seasons are excellent.
  • Gear: Fuji S2 Pro/Nikon 12-24 @ 12mm/Gitzo tripod, Arca-Swiss ballhead
