During a winter storm in 1864, Mormon pioneers painstakingly traversed this unforgettable mountain road by throwing down handmade quilts onto the snow to make their way from Panguitch to Parowan. Like the blocks of a quilt, the Patchwork Parkway passes through many diverse landscapes and geological wonders that bound together make for an amazing road trip.
