Rest Area | Virgin River Canyon Recreation Area – Cedar Pocket

This entry is part of our Summer 2013 Boulder Utah Getaway series of posts. 

When traveling with dogs, it’s important to pull over every now and again to let the dogs (and yourself) stretch your legs. Our first stop on Wednesday morning happened to be down the Virgin River Gorge at the Cedar Pocket exit. A beautiful, beautiful place to stop for a bit.
