Gateway to Ivins

Ivins is a small community west of Saint George. It is a growing community and not as isolated as these photos make it appear. I was impressed with the sculptures, and I stopped to take several pictures. They are sited around a boulder in the center of a roundabout. Roundabouts seem to be appearing throughout the area. They work well for light to moderate traffic, but not with heavy traffic or slow-moving semis and large RVs. Drivers who are not familiar with roundabouts impede the traffic flow. Personally, I favor more traditional solutions for traffic control.

Most of the black in the above is lava. The red marker marks the roundabout.
