A New Road Opens

We live on Exit 2 of the freeway which goes to the airport and dead ends but will eventually continue to Hurricane via a to be built Southern Parkway-now a new section is finished so we went for a drive.
A new section of the Southern Parkway is finished to Sand Hollow Reservoir
Cut through solid red sandstone, it's a colorful road to drive 
Lots of work and blasting to make this cut for the road to go through
Pine Valley Mountains in the distance and wide open spaces
Gorgeous natural colors make this a beautiful desert area with stark beauty
Virgin River wanders back into the city of St. George
End of the road for  now, but construction is continuing
