On 10/18/2017, on the return of a recent trip to Pioche, Nevada, Harvey Smith and I decided to visit Cathedral Gorge for a second time to capture a few more pictures. I find the unique geology of this park to be fascinating and always worth a stop. A short side road from the highway leads to a picnic area opposite the Cathedral Caves, closer to the edge of the gorge. The brightly-colored cliffs and spires provide the opportunity walk through nearly a dozen caves notched in to the eroding cliffs. Click here for pictures and a description of this recent visit ...
