What happened after Roland Wiley died was a damn shame. I used to take people out there to see Cathedral Canyon and some friends of mine held their wedding there. I always left a donation in the jar.
I have to guess that the heirs to Wiley's estate weren't interested in keeping the place up. As the place deteriorated, they did put some "closed" signs up (probably for liability reasons). The last time I visited, the place was beginning to fall apart from lack of maintenance. It's just too bad because it is gone forever and all that is left is pictures and memories of something beautiful created by a man was just doing what he wanted to do.
