“[Cathedral] Gorge Canyon State Park in Nevada is known for its abundance of slot canyons. The walls are buff-colored and change to deeper colors as the sun moves, allowing for different scenic views throughout a day. The siltstone canyons and cathedral-like spires have resulted from events occurring tens of millions of years ago. This park has many hidden treasures, great walking trails that take visitors into the middle of the spires and caves to explore.
“Alongside its natural beauty, the gorge has a deep history of early pioneers from the late 1800s. During the 1920s, once people owned automobiles, they came to explore this unique area. It became a state park in 1935 and the Civilian Conservation Corps over time built stone fire pits, a shade ramada and picnicking facilities.”
