Cathedral Gorge State Park is located one mile north of the intersection of US Highway 93 and State Route 319 near Panaca, north of Las Vegas.  This is a fabulous geological site with many eroding structures of the Panaca Formation.  It is a great deal of fun winding amongst the hoodoo type forms which can yield some bizarre angles and spectacular photos.  The area is small and can be easily covered in a day.  You may also see some wildlife, although unlikely in the heat of the day.
