Are you considering purchasing a new home in St. George, Utah? If you are, I would not blame you. |
St. George is a beautiful desert city to live in. At the very northern most tip of the Mojave Desert, the famous red rock cliffs make the scenery stunning. The red contrasts the green of the desert vegetation, and the big blue sky seems bluer than ever against the rusty colored rocks. You might be wondering what makes the rocks red. The answer is in the amount of iron oxide found in the rocks. If you are into geology and rocks, there are several formations from the Permian, Triassic, and Jurassic periods within the city limits to peak your interest. Also, basaltic lava flow from the Quaternary period, estimated to have been created about 1.2 million years ago, forms black ridges to the east and west of the old part of the city.
Besides the beautiful geography, the climate of St. George is wonderfully ideal as well. Though St. George holds Utah's record for a high temperature of one hundred and eighteen degrees Fahrenheit in July of 2007, the low elevation and southerly location keep St. George pretty mild in the wintertime. Temperatures do drop below freezing frequently at night, but the desert sun warms up to about fifty degrees Fahrenheit during the winter days. With these temperatures, the bike paths and parks are always filled with people enjoying some fun in the sun. Have you ever wondered where on earth would be the perfect climate to go running in the mornings no matter what time of year? St. George is definitely up in the running to take that award.
If this brief description sounds like it should be home to you, St. George real estate is waiting for you to move in.
