Apple Valley Utah is one of Washington County's newest towns.  Located in a small valley just 12 miles east of Hurricane Utah, this little community consists of approximately 300 homes.  I took this photo just outside of Apple Valley as the sun was setting which gave the mountain a red glow.

It's time once again for Peach Days in Hurricane Utah. This event and this year promises to be a fabulous celebration.  The theme for Peach Days this year is "A Celebration of our Heritage".  The event will be held on Friday 9/2/11 and Saturday 9/3/11. I attended the first Peach Days when I moved to St George Utah 14 years ago, and I don't think I've missed one since.  It's a fun event to take the family to and has become a tradition for mine. There's always plenty of food booths showcasing many different types of cuisine.  In years past, some of the local scout or youth groups have also had food booths to raise money for their organizations.  There's usually at least one booth selling Navajo Tacos, a local favorite!  Don't want a whole Navajo Taco?  How about a piece of Navajo Fry Brea...

Fourth of July activities for 2011 in Hurricane Utah include the return of the traditional "dynamite blast" early on the morning of July 4th, 2011.  In years past, residents of Hurricane Utah began their July 4th celebration with one or more dynamite blasts.  This tradition was discontinued many years ago, but is being reinstated this year as part of the City's efforts to return to the past. A simulated dynamite blast will kick off the festivities in Hurricane at 6:00 am. The theme for Hurricane's celebration this fourth of July is "Proud to Be an American".  There will be a lot of activities to participate in throughout the day (including some new ones this year).  Come join us for a day full of patriotic fun!  Some of the planned activities include the Lions Club Breakfast which begin...

Thankful Thursdays: A LOT to be thankful for! More than a year ago I did a post called, Local Radio Advertising Dead? Think again!, sharing the fact that radio remains a viable local marketing tool. Potential clients (mother and son) who heard the Prado & Kramer Real Estate commercial on the radio, walked through the door looking for a building lot. Well, after searching for several weeks, we found a property priced to move! The lot was being sold for the dirt as the house was aged and the bank figured it would be torn down. As my client began walking through the circa 1920 home, he discovered the walls were intact, no major structural damage or leaks in the roof. After peeling back several layers of linoleum, realized original wood flooring underneath! He has been renovating the interi...

Sky Mountain Golf Course in Hurricane Utah has such a spectacular backdrop with snow capped Pine Valley mountain behind it. This course is always beautiful, but I think it's especially gorgeous right now with the different mountain ranges around it, some with snow on them.  It won't be there long, I'm afraid.  Spring is on it's way and the snow will melt soon.

The Sand Hollow Golf Course is expertly maintained and its fairways are always green and lush. When I play there, I am tempted to take my shoes off and walk barefoot, it's Nature's idea of outdoor carpeting! And it is featured throughout the course! Come and experience southern Utah golf for yourself and you'll agree! Sand Hollow Resort:  Named The GOLF Magazine's Best New Courses of 2008. Sand Hollow Resort consists of two stunning John Fought Design courses, utilizing the areas natural rock formations, cliffs and panoramic views. AMAZING!

 Sky Mountain Golf Course is owned by the City of Hurricane and a public 18-hole golf course. It is one of the most scenic courses anywhere in the world. It is much more challenging than the yardage would indicate.  I suggest a cart for those of you who have difficulty managing a lot of hilly terrain! And remember to bring your camera! Sky Mountain Golf Course ~ 6,312 yard par 72 1030 North 2600 WestHurricane, Utah 84737(435) 635-7888
