Where does all that red sandstone go as it erodes? Some of it goes to the shores of Sand Hollow State Park and its brilliant beaches.

4K Nature Walks – Red Sand Beach in Sand Hollow State Park in Utah – Patreon Beach Walk – 4K City Walks

We visited family down in Utah this weekend and we took a day to go to the red sandy beached Sand Hollow State Park. It’s a reservoir, lake, and popular place to go shred some trails with ORVs (off road vehicles). They were having some sort of rally but in this video for treadmill we mostly stick to the pleasant, quiet beach. We see coots and ruddy ducks in the water and the unbelievably saturated colors of Utah’s red sandstone and blue skies and waters.

They created the park for recreation and people like to take their wave runners on the water and ATVs out on the sand. We’ll see lots of tire tracks but that’s ok. We also do take a quick run up to the parking lot to see what’s going on up there for the rally. But, I then take you back to the red sandy beach. So beautiful. -H
