Escalante Canyons Marathon October 12, 2019
There's nothing quite like fall weather in the canyon and there's nothing quite like participating in a marathon that is along one of the most scenic highways in the world. Combine the two and you get a little slice of bliss.
For more information on this marathon you can visit the website:
Perseid Meteor Shower
The Perseid meteor shower is one of the best that you can observe. It produces up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. Discovered in 1862, it was produced by the comet Swift-Tuttle. Perseid is most famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower can be seen from July 17 to August 24 and runs annually.
This year it peaks on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. A thin crescent moon will set early in the evening and leave the sky dark for what promises to be an excellent display. The meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus and can appear anywhere in the sky. For best viewing, you will want to be in a dark location after midnight. Perfect from our campground!
View the Night Sky
If you've ever wanted to view the night sky in all it's glory, then you may be coming to the right place! The views are spectacular and you won't even have to leave your campsite. You may even witness a meteor shower! Visit the link provided to help you see what's happening in our solar system during your stay with us.
