VOTE NOW! Who’s Got THE BEST Colors of Southern Utah Schools?
Here in Southern Utah we now have 8 schools, and that's NOT counting Enterprise!
- Canyon View
- Crimson Cliffs
- Desert Hills
- Pine View
- Snow Canyon
But WHO has the best Color Scheme going on? Let's break it down and vote!
1. Canyon View High School:
To be completely honest... Green is my least favorite color, so they already have that against them... But all-in-all, I think these colors are a little boring. 4/10.
2. Cedar High:
These colors are TOUGH! This is a great color scheme. The burgundy and gold bounce off eachother so well! 8/10.
3. Crimson Cliffs:
Very AMERICANA... But is it too gimmicky? I really like the colors together, especially when you tone them down a bit like this. It's not BRIGHT RED, and BRIGHT BLUE. Very solid, but maybe a little overdone. 7/10.
4. Desert Hills:
I'm biased because I went to Desert Hills, and voted on these colors when I was 15. However, BLACK AND GOLD IS TOUGH, and also classy! Plus, that little splash of purple... I LOVE! I wish they would do more with the purple, and maybe they will in the future! 9/10.
Dixie is just old and trustworthy. Very simple. Blue and white. BUT, it wasn't ALWAYS that way... in the late 80's, yellow/gold was also a part of the color scheme, but they've dropped it along the years. They've also transitioned back and forth from a navy blue, to a bright royal blue. Solid colors, straight to the point... Maybe a tad boring though. 6/10.
Again, another old but trustworthy scheme here. Red, Black, White. It's pretty boring, like Dixie's... But ANYTIME you watch a movie with a high school game being played, there's ALWAYS a team in Hurricane colors. 6/10.
7. Pine View:
Once again... I'm biased here. I used to go to Pine View before Desert Hills was built in 2008. I really love Pine View's colors! Unfortunately, the more I see Pine View, the more I see them leaving the Maroon behind. It's like they're trying to go Black and Silver only and I'm NOT down with that. Maroon is the driving force to this scheme! 8/10.
8. Snow Canyon:
You know what I like about these colors? Snow Canyon took a shot! They tried here. Unfortunately though... I really don't like the color green! But it looks good if Navy and Gold are their primary colors, then throw in a touch of green. 7/10.
What do you think? Tell me which color schemes you think are the best!

Secretly AMAZING Pizza In Small Town, Utah!
Over Memorial Day weekend I found a treasure in the Pizza World! It's located in Marysvale, Utah in Piute County. A TON of people have never even heard of Marysvale, but the place is a diamond in the rough. More about Marysvale later, but for now... let's talk pizza!
This place is called Tomatoes Pizza Pie, A New York Original.
This place has some HONESTLY INCREDIBLE PIZZA, and they're usually lined out the doors! You can even order to go if you'd like.
THE PIZZAS WE TRIED:
Canadian Bacon & Pineapple.
Chicken, Bacon, Ranch.
If you're ever feeling a day trip, a weekend camping trip, or even an overnight stay... Head on out to Marysvale, Utah. It's only 2 hours 22 minutes from St. George, and about an hour and a half from Cedar City. It's right on I-89, 30 minutes south of Richfield.
You won't regret trying this pizza! It's HANDS DOWN, my favorite pizza in the state.
LOVE THIS: Southern Utah's FIRST & ONLY Inflatable Water Park!
There's a NEW and FUN thing going on at Quail Creek Reservoir and your kids are going to go BANANAS for it!
St. George Aqua Adventures has brought THIS to Quail and I'm about to go have the time of my life out there!
They're open 7 days a week from 9am-9pm! There's trampolines, slides, swings, jungle gyms, and even obstacle courses... ALL IN THE LAKE! This is a first for Southern Utah!
Their prices are TOTALLY reasonable too!
Ages 6-10: $12 for the 1st hour, and $6 for each additional hour.
Ages 11+ $20 for the 1st hour, and $10 for each additional hour.
People online are LOVING this! Here are some comments:
Kesia: "Yay! This looks so fun. Can't wait to take my kids."
Mikey: "Yes!! It's finally in the water!"
Betty: "This would be fun with the kids!
Appointments or reservations are NOT necessary! You can just show up and have fun!
There's even lifeguards there, but NEVER depend on lifeguards to babysit your kids. You should always be there with them.
I, for one, know that I'm going to be out there this summer on that swing, bouncing off those trampolines! This sounds like so much fun, I'm really happy we have this here in Southern Utah!
If you've been out there let us know on Facebook at Cat Country Utah what you thought about it! Was it awesome? Did you get any awesome pictures? Did your kids love it?
Southern Utah Tips & Tricks With DJ: Cheap Car Rentals!
At one point or another in your life, you've probably needed to rent a car, right? But it can be SO EXPENSIVE! What looks cheap, can EASILY turn expensive and hundreds of dollars a day for a car!
You know what's even worse? Flying into a city and THERE'S NO CARS LEFT TO RENT! What do you do?!
I GOT YOU COVERED!
Now here me out... Nobody wants to drive a big storage truck around, but what if it was a fraction of the cost of a car rental? I'm talking... AT LEAST half the price! If you wanted a tiny little car for a week, that could run you $250, minimum! But renting a UHAUL truck would be a fraction of that!
UHAUL rents their trucks at $20 a day! TWENTY BUCKS! YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT!
A friend of mine, Brayden Phillips, used to work for Enterprise Rent-A-Car and he's even used this hack before in his own life. "Sometime's we run out of cars and people don't know what to do! I tell them to go rent a UHAUL for $20 a day!"
Phillips recalls a time where he passed that advice on to a man who flew into town for a softball tournament. "After the tournament was over, he told me what a great idea it was to rent the UHAUL. Him and his buddies piled in the back between games, and had a place to hang out!"
ALSO... You only have to be 18 years old to rent a UHAUL, instead of 25 for most car rental companies. That's BIG!
