“Who Designed Your Rooms?”

Double Queen Room Remodel

This is a question we are frequently asked after we have some of our rooms remodeled, or because the mattress was so comfortable.  Much of our design work  is done by the designers at Boulevard Home Furnishings.  If you have any questions regarding the furnishings or fabrics you may call Wendy Wittwer at the Boulevard Home Furnishings st0re located locally in St. George.  You may reach Wendy by asking for her when you call the store at 435-673-9657.  More rooms will be remodeled by the end of Summer!

Bar G Wranglers visit from Bryce Canyon

Bar G WranglersThe Bar G Wranglers live western singing group was formed in 1998 by Russ Eacker of Hurricane, Utah. He and his dad, Dean Eacker, sang together with the “Sons of the Golden West” and are former members of the “Bar J Wranglers” from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Russ grew up watching his dad work with the likes of the “Spade Cooley Band,” “Tex Williams Western Caravan” and once singing with Roy Rogers and Tex Williams at a large rodeo in the Los Angeles Coliseum. He decided keeping western music alive and well, was a mission that he wanted to be a part of.

Typically to enjoy the Bar G Wranglers you would have to visit them at the Ebenezer’s Barn & Grill at Bryce Canyon where they perform nightly.  However on April 11th they will be giving a FREE public performance at 7:30pm at the Vernon Worthen Park at 300 S 400 E.  The park is only 3 blocks away from the Best Western Coral Hills. 

The Best Western Coral Hills is a proud sponsor of the 2011 St. George Concert in the Park Series.  All concerts are open to the public and free of charge.  Hosted every second Monday from April through September and start at 7:30pm

Red Canyon on the way to Bryce Canyon

 
 
 
 
 
 

Red Canyon Tunnels

Red Canyon and Butch Cassidy

History and lore of the old west are alive in Red Canyon, thanks to Butch Cassidy, who was raised nearby in a cabin in Circleville where he lived from 1879 until 1884. Rumor has it that when Cassidy was in Panguitch at a dance he got himself into a brawl over a girl. Cassidy thought he killed the fellow and fled to the craggy land where Red Canyon is today.  Turns out, the man he knocked out was just fine, but a posse was already sent out after Cassidy. He eluded them by hiding along what is now known as the Cassidy Trail.  Red Canyon is not quite as famous as old Butch, but it is part of the vast 2-million acres that make up Utah’s most famous forest, Dixie National Forest.

Red Canyon – Utah

Red Canyon is located along Scenic Byway 12, just 9 miles from Bryce Canyon. Passing through it is required to get to Bryce Canyon National Park from the west. From the east, stay on Highway 12, past the junction of highways 12 and 63 for 9 miles, to find Red Canyon.

From the Native Americans who traveled the canyons, to people like J.W. Humphry who constructed the tunnels, Red Canyon on the Dixie National Forest has fascinated people for centuries. Unique vermilion-colored rock formation and stands of Ponderosa pines make the canyon exceptionally scenic. Take time to discover all that Red Canyon has to offer.

The first stop when touring Highway 12 is the Scenic Byway Information Kiosk located at the mouth of Red Canyon. This information pavilion provides an overview of the entire byway and highlights significant features.

The Red Canyon Visitor Center, open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, has information on hiking, camping, picnicking, and sightseeing. A U.S. Forest Service campground is across the road from the visitor center.

As part of Dixie National Forest there are no entry fees to drive through or hike in Red Canyon. Red Canyon, a spectacular oasis of rock nested in a vast forest known to locals as “Dixie.” The two-million acre, 170 mile long forest ranges from Red Canyon’s arid desertscape of sandstone hoodoos to a lush high altitude forest on Cedar Mountain.
