The scenery, especially in fall, is spectacular! The air is fresh and crisp, scented with wood smoke and the trees cloaked in reds, yellows and orange...nature's wonders compare to any place on earth. During the fall there is a sense of solitude that truly lends itself to viewing these marvelous giants. Without the usual crowds of tourists you can really appreciate the show Mother Nature puts on for you. The road off the 198 is twisting but the views are better appreciated at the 25 mpg speed limit imposed for the last few miles into the Park's entrance. To really see and appreciate this great park you should allow a minimum of 6-8 hours. If you bring picnics be prepared to secure your food items in the bear storage lockers...the park provides these lockers for a good reason. We saw fox, bluebirds, golden eagles, hawks and rabbits and some deer.
