1st leg - Friday (PM) Sept 10, 2021 Cathedral Gorge State Park
Cathedral Gorge State Park is located in a long, narrow valley in southeastern Nevada, where erosion has carved dramatic and unique patterns in the soft bentonite clay. The park’s beauty began with explosive volcanic activity that, with each eruption, deposited layers of ash hundreds of feet thick. Great walking trails abound for exploring the cave-like formations and cathedral-like spires that are the result of geologic processes from tens of millions of years ago. A photographer’s dream, the park offers stunning views of the scenic canyon and visitors can enjoy hiking, picnicking, camping and nature study.
2nd leg - Saturday (AM) Sept 11, 2021 Echo Canyon State Park
Showcasing the beauty of Eastern Nevada, Echo Canyon State Park offers year-round opportunities to enjoy a variety of great outdoor activities. The 65-acre reservoir presents the perfect place for boating and swimming and is home to a variety of waterfowl, including mallards, teals and herons. Fishermen enjoy a lake filled with rainbow trout, largemouth bass, crappie and an occasional German brown trout. Campers and hikers can also enjoy the eagles, hawks, songbirds, owls and vultures that soar through the canyons and valleys. Common animals include cottontails, coyotes, deer and an occasional bobcat.
3rd leg - Saturday (PM) Sept 11, 2021 Kershaw-Ryan State Park
Situated in a colorful canyon, with towering walls up to 700 feet high and a long, verdant valley in between, Kershaw-Ryan State Park is an oasis in the desert, a sharp contrast to the rugged landscape that surrounds it. Natural springs grow a garden of wild grapevines, white oaks, fruit trees and willows, and a spring-fed pond provides a refreshing children’s wading pool. It is not unusual to see wild horses, deer and other wildlife come to the water. With plenty of places to picnic and a series of trails that wind throughout, the park is a great choice for hiking, camping and nature study.
