We've reached the Red Barn just south of Santaquin. The Red Barn is one of two mandatory stops on the St. George to Salt Lake run, the other mandatory stop being the cheese factory in Beaver. The Red Barn has cold storage apples of all kinds, apple juice, cherry juice, and countless varieties of jams, butters, and syrups, plus an outstanding ice cream counter with dozens of varieties of wonderful ice cream.
Here is some of the scenery you will see on I-15 in Utah north of Nephi and nearing Santaquin.
