13.5 Miles north east of Cedar City - Hwy U-130
Spring Equinox Observation held 6:00 pm at the Parowan Gap Petroglyphs (National Register of Historic Sites), FREE. The observation is a presentation of the ancient Native American solar calendar and observation of the spring equinox sunset. Includes a guided interpretive tour so wear good walking shoes and bring drinking water. Watch the Sun gently roll down the south side of the Gap opening until it comes to rest in the nook before disappearing into the night. One can observe this event from the Equinox carins a short distance from the Gap opening. Please wear walking shoes and wear winter coats/clothing due to winter conditions. There are accommodations for those unable to walk to the carins. For information call Nancy Dalton 435-463-3735.
Please Note: A winter storm is forecast for Saturday. Actual conditions will determine length of event. Minimally, attendees will be shown the Equinox carins, so they can return on a better evening during the next week to observe the Equinox sunset.
