  • Impressive formation in the Caverns. You just follow the trail to see it. I can't belive how the first exploreser felt when they found it.

  • We hiked most of the way up to the cave and turned around because some of the trail was washed out and the drop off was steep and scaring me with my 4 year old. However the hike up was well worth the stunning views of the canyon. Pretty steep and steady incline.
  • Incredible experience. Would definitely do it again!!
