Recommend a visit to this canyon - it is very lovely. There are lovely walks and vistas. It is an interesting drive and worth seeing it from as many places and angles as possible.

Worth the drive it is a beautiful little walk. You can also stop by the fish wall and knock out two things at once. If you have time, there are some hiking trails.
