Cedar Breaks National Monument, Utah

Cedar Breaks is located near Cedar City. Cedar Breaks is a natural amphitheater canyon, stretching across 3 miles, with a depth of over 2,000 feet. The elevation of the rim of the canyon is over 10,000 feet above sea level.
The eroded rock of the canyon is similar to formations at Bryce Canyon National Park, but has its own distinct look. Because of its elevation, snow often makes it inaccessible to vehicles from October through May.

Down in the valley is Cedar City

We hiked to this apline lake, you can see all the dead Spruce trees around. The pine beattle killed a large number of trees here

Here's are campsite, there was a large meadow behind the tree line

Sit down and enjoy the fire, the campsite is above 10,000 feet and the temperatures dropped down into the low 30's at night here.
