Welcome the Winter Season at Parowan Gap

Parowan Gap Begins the Winter Season

Where: Parowan Gap Petroglyphs National Register of Historical Sites

What: Observe the natural phenomenon that reminded the native americans of Southern Utah to prepare for the up-coming winter.

“This is the most amazing event of all the events to be observed at the Gap,” said event coordinator/interpreter Nancy Dalton, who explained, “that before and after Nov. 6-8, the morning sun will pass through the Overseer’s mouth, but only on these three days will the sun enter his mouth and sit, and sit, and sit and – gulp – the Overseer swallows the sun.  Thus, telling the American Indian people that the Summer Sun has gone into its winter home, and if they have not prepared for winter weather, then they better be moving south quickly.”

Along with watching the Summer Sun go into its winter home, the event will include a walking interpretive tour of the Gap and its many petroglyphs.  Those attending the event are strongly encouraged to wear winter coats, hats and gloves, as the winter wind through the Gap can be quite chilly.
