This is another distance photo only this one is of Parowan, Utah. Parowan is approximately 15 miles North of Cedar City. I thought that I would take photos of some of the smaller towns that we work in. Parowan is the County Seat of Iron County and is often called the "Mother City" of Southern Utah as most of the Pioneers that settled other communities came from or started from Parowan. This photograph is taken from Old Highway 91 South West of Parowan.
Parowan is another town whose name comes from a Native American word, this time it means evil water or bad water. There is a lake west of town called the Little Salt Lake, it is mostly a dry lake, but in times past, it did have water, which was bad:
Much like most of Iron County, Parowan is another jewel along Interstate 15. As you can see it is located in a very beautiful valley!
