When we were introduced to Cedar Breaks National Monument in 2015, we didn't have the time to take anything in. It was a quick stop, to say the least.
When we had to leave, we vowed that we would be return for an "intentional" trip. This year provided that opportunity. In doing research for our vacation, Kay found Cedar Breaks NM Facebook page. It is a wonderful page that you should check out if you are planning a trip (or just like to see pretty vistas and awesome outdoor events) to CBNM (www.facebook.com/CedarBreaksNationalMonument/) We knew found out that the wild flowers would be blooming at the time we were planning to visit and that they would be having Professional Artists performing demonstrations in the park those days too. That was SO exciting!
Our goal was to plan a hike to walk through the wild flowers and see the breaks. We stopped that the visitors center first and got a recommendation from the Rangers for a trail. The Alpine Pond Trail was PERFECT!
We thoroughly enjoyed the parts of the park we were able to see this time. During our time in the park we got to learn from rangers, artists, and National Park Volunteers who happened to be professors on Astronomy.
Cedar Breaks National Monument truly is an awesome place that should be preserved. I personally think it should be at National Park status. Maybe one day. Until next time, keep on trekking!
Kay and Matt enjoy hiking all over the USA. We have a YouTube Channel to video our adventures, this blog, and we are working on building an app to allow others to go on adventures too.
