Photographer's Note

Cathedral Gorge's 'badland' topography does not permit many plants to take root since the clay is constantly eroding away. Several non-native tree species have been planted at the campground to provide shade. In addition, temperature extremes make it tough on plants, with winter freezing and above 100 degrees F in the summer.
A 4 mile hiking loop trail ventures into remote areas of the 1,608 acre Nevada state park.
