Time for park closure was earlier than sunset,but the ranger allowed everyone to stay to watch. Sunsets are spectacular. We were in the area only a few days but made sure to get back for a second showing!

We were at this park in the spring of this year, when things were just beginning to look decent. There isn't much there except a wooden walkway, which is uncrowded and unspoiled. There is a pavilion toward the end of the walk, but it isn't...More
