We discovered that the town of St. George was colonized by Mormons who were sent by Brigham Young. It is called "Dixie" because of its climate. At one time the produce, such as grapes and sugar cane, were more prevalent than most other places in the United States.
Everywhere we went we gained more information about the city and its high and low points from the live tour guides at each spot. We were also directed to Zion National Park while on the town tour. It is very close and at this time of the year you have no crowds to fight with and the trails are easily followed for short or long hikes. We went to Zion and back in one day.
