This is a beautiful drive. The rocks are so unique. Loved it, and took a lunch. Got there on 4th of July, and the park was free. I think, otherwise, it is $5.00. Not real sure about the price. Well worth the money!

Perfect time to hike the trails. No bugs to bother you and too cool for snakes. I used a hiking stick to maneuver large roots. The Kachina trail is my favorite, lots of big trees and boulders.

Did some hiking at Red Mountain. Nice spot, created by volcanic activity, beautiful place to hike, nice and quiet. The majority of the hike was fairly easy, however when up against the mountain, one can climb / hike further up, but it becomes a difficult hike. Extreme heat wave during our visit, it was in the 90's.

Hiking through the lava fields gives you an enhanced appreciation of the vision of Theodore Roosevelt in establishing protected areas. Millions of untouched acres in The West are a testament to his memory.
