Veyo Pies

Veyo Pies

I hope you all celebrated National Pie Day this year because the staff of St. George Resort Rentals sure did! The best thing about this special day is you don’t have to make up an excuse ‘why’ you are going to have pie since there is a whole day dedicated to it. Not that we need an excuse to have pie…

Well, we want to tell you about our favorite place to get pie, that is definitely worth the 20 minute drive to get the best of the best. It is a real diamond in the rough. We doubt you have ever heard of Veyo, Utah, but that is the pie destination. If you do know of Veyo, Utah then you already know how amazing the pies are!

Now it is not just any pie, it is a “Veyo Pie.” Veyo Pies has been around for almost 30 years and they have such a great variety of pies to choose from, it can be difficult to choose which kind to get. Or if you want to try a few different kinds, get a couple of slices to go! It takes just about 20 minutes from St. George to get to Veyo is all, but the scenery on the drive there doesn’t get any better! You can visit their website at www.veyopies.com

So next time you come to stay at one of our St. George, Utah Vacation Rentals, be sure to head out on SR-18 (head north at the Bluff and Snow Canyon Parkway intersection) and make an afternoon of it. We promise, you will not be disappointed! There are some really great trails you can stop at along the way or just to stop and pull off the road to get a couple of snapshots if anything. You can pullout at the Chuckawalla Trailhead and take in the beautiful Snow Canyon views, check things out at the Cinder Cone trail and try to make your way to the top, or even stop and golf at the Ledges and enjoy the beautiful course! There are lots of things you could get out and do to make your way to get a taste of the famous Veyo Pies.

Since our full kitchens are so accommodating, we do recommend to get a whole pie for the rest of your vacation. It really does make for the perfect midnight snack! ENJOY!

Bloomington Caves in St. George, Utah

[widgetkit id=583]
Are you coming to vacation to one of our luxurious St. George, Utah Vacation Rentals and want to enjoy some serious outdoor adventure? Well you are in for a definite treat. If you are interested in exploring new places, the Bloomington Caves is one adventure you do no want to miss out on  – some really great rock climbing (and crawling). The best part is that it is accessible year-round!

The local BLM field office has set up a great system to allow the public to use this awesome cave where it also allows them to regulate it so that there doesn’t end up being a huge group of people at once, vandalism, or unwanted animals entering the caves. So it is necessary to get a permit before going to the site. You can go to this website to begin your process of obtaining a permit for you and your group to visit the Bloomington Caves just outside of St. George. http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/fo/st__george/recreation/caving/permit_system.html

In preparation to go be sure to take a few things that will be extremely useful and make your experience more enjoyable:

  • helmet
  • headlamp (hands-free flashlight)
  • back-up flashlights
  • light pack with water and snacks
  • knee-pads (you do a fair share of crawling)
  • rope
  • good hiking/climbing shoes/boots
  • jacket/sweater

I recently went with a group of people and among the group were a few experienced climbers (which I was definitely glad to have someone who knew what they were doing). I have been to other caves before, but by no means would I classify myself as an experienced climber.

To set the mood for you, the sun is beginning to set outside and temperatures are chilly with a slight breeze. As we get to the entrance of the cave you can immediately feel the humidity and warmth as we all began to enter into the cave. A few in the group even had some fogged glasses at first. According to the BLM surveyors the Bloomington Caves are at approximately 58 degrees year-round, but due to the humidity it did feel a little warmer than that.

As you are inside this incredible tectonic cave you just continue on exploring the maze in front of you. There are different levels to climb, passages to squeeze through narrow spots, some slippery surfaces where you are sliding, and others where you have to literally crawl your way through. The routes have been marked inside the cave, which is extremely helpful since it is so dark inside the caves. It is especially unique as you stop and look around at your surroundings as you are inside the cave. It really is incredible! Look at the formations, faults, soda straws, and other stalagmites – pretty unique I would say! To say the least, it was an amazing new adventure and perfect winter activity!

To give you a better idea check out this virtual tour created by the local BLM here:

So for the next time you come and stay with us at one of our St. George Vacation Rentals in St. George, Utah – you will have to be sure and give this a try!
