    Pine Park Getaway 

    It has been a couple of months, but I still daydream about Pine Park, situated within Dixie National Forest. Growing up mushroom hunting in the Saint-Germain-en-Laye forest, west of Paris, France, I was ecstatic to find Alice in Wonderland sized mushrooms here. Granted these were non-edible, and made out of tuff (formed by volcanic ash flows 18-14 million years ago), but the moody sky contrasted beautifully with these gargantuan figures. As we made our way further down the road, smaller hoodoos poked their heads up among the pinyon pines, until we fell upon a child’s paradise; a picturesque viewpoint was perfectly framed by pine trees, and let the mind wander into another dimension, a fantasy world where cats can talk, rabbits can tell the time, and you can dig for apples. About two hours North of St George, Utah, Pine Park provides a variety of shaded dispersed camping sites, and is well worth the detour.
