PAROWAN — An interpretive tour of Parowan Gap followed by watching the sun set from the equinox cairns will be held Saturday beginning at 6 p.m.
The evening event will start with a guided interpretive walk through the narrow Gap opening, which will include an explanation of how the Gap was formed and interpretation of several solar and lunar calendar petroglyphs. At 7 p.m. the group will drive four-tenths of a mile to the trail to the equinox cairns (a rock pile monument). From there the group will hike two-tenths of a mile up to the equinox cairns.
Those attending the event are encouraged to wear hiking shoes and dress warm, in case the wind is blowing.
For more information including driving directions, contact Nancy Dalton at 435-463-3735.
