  • This place is awe insuring amazing and beautiful. The paint mines are a historic treasure where clay and pigment were gathered by indigenous native peoples for dye/paint. Beautiful mud of yellow/orange white and red/purple to magnificent for words. Well maintained paths. Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints please its up to us to preserve this gem. If you live or are visiting the area this is a must see. Take water, wear sunscreen, dress for possible wind or change in weather and enjoy making magical memories!
