Cathedral Valley Loop

On the map, the blind crossing of the Freemont River looked interesting. During higher water, this entrance into the Cathedral Valley Loop trail would not be advisable.

Standing on the cliffs overlooking Cathedral Valley, we could only imagine what Indian Chief might have posed for a million years as wind, rain and snow carved this wonderful face in the rock.

Aptly named. These amazing sandstone buttresses in the Cathedral Valley can truly appear to be “cathedrals” in the afternoon light. Unscaleable from any side, we could best  admire their beauty from a distance.
