If you really want to enjoy the beauty of nature this summer, Cathedral George State Park is the place to visit. There are many good reasons to visit the park but at first let me tell you what to expect. It covers a wide area of over seven kilometres. About fifteen hundred meter above sea level be prepared to enjoy the real warm summer.
If you have heard about the colourful Cathedral George canyons, which is also known as Panaca formation, you can definitely catch a glimpse of that beauty. Even though the lake slowly drained over centuries, it is still beautiful.
If you think the real beauty of a park is in its flowers, then large, white and pure look of Dune Primroses along with many other wild flowers will not disappoint you. Animal lovers will find almost the entire rabbit family here. Jackrabbits, cottontail rabbits, coyotes, mice and skunks. If you are lucky you might see a Deer or two which is not very unusual in the late summer and fall. If you see some blackbirds, black throated sparrows, finches, road runners, American kestrels, American robins, know that you are looking at the locals. That’s not all though. Bluebirds, warblers, cedar waxwings, hummingbirds migrate here for this warm season.
The best way to enjoy the beauty of summer is in the nature. If you have not been that close to the nature this summer yet, this might be your last chance. Don’t miss it.
