Gathering of the Guard 2017
Sept 8-10th 2017 Panguitch, UT

***Big Rock Candy Mountain***

...

As you journey to Panguitch for the GOTG, make sure to you jump onto Historic Heritage Highway 89, and visit Big Rock Candy Mountain, in Sevier County, Utah, 5 miles north of Marysvale, UT or about 30 miles south of Richfield in the Sevier Canyon.

Harry McClintock first recorded a song entitled "Big Rock Candy Mountain" in 1928. The lyrics describe a traveling hobo who comes down the tracks to find the peace and perfection of the Big Rock Candy Mountain.

According to the song, Big Rock is a place where the handouts grow on bushes, the cops all have wooden legs, and you sleep all day next to a spring of lemonade.

At some point after the song's release, a group of central Utah residents placed a sign at the bottom of a caramel colored group of hills identifying the site as Big Rock Candy Mountain.

Next to one of the local springs, they also placed a placard identifying it as the "Lemonade Spring". The name stuck and the site has become one of the most recognized geological sites in Central Utah. It is world renowned for both its natural beauty and outdoor recreational opportunities.

So, where DO those colors come from? From many millions of years of mineralization, caused by a complex chemical process involving hydrogen sulfide, steam, ground water, and oxygen.
About 22-35 million years ago, volcanoes in the area erupted, leaving a lot of lava and ash. The volcanic rocks are over 3,000 feet thick. Iron minerals like jarosite, hematite and pyrite cause the yellow, red, and orange colors; potassium rich minerals like alunite and kaolinite cause the white color.

Come have some fun and see the beautiful scenery for yourselves. Come and enjoy the time as the PGR honors the Veterans of the Panguitch area like has been done in Torrey and Bear River City.

And just like in Torrey, this is a highly utilized tourist area. Reserve your accommodations early, things are booking up fast! Remember to check the cancellation policy. It is easier to cancel if you can't;t come than it is to try and get a place to stay at the last minute.

More information coming.

It appears that BOOKING.COM is messing with reservations in Panguitch like they did in Tremonton.

Debbie Hurst called to confirm her reservation at the Knights Inn, (which she made through Booking.com) and they didn't have her as reserving a room. She was however, able to reserve her room and the 3 last rooms at the Knights Inn in case anyone needs a room. She says they are $75.00-ish per night. Contact Debbie directly if you need to use one of her rooms.

It may be exped...ient to double check your reservations now, just to prevent what did happen in Tremonton.

The manager at Knights Inn suggested that those wanting to reserve rooms anywhere in Panguitch either call the establishment directly or they have had good luck with Expedia.com blocking off rooms when they are reserved through them.
