Pictures don’t do this place justice. This 16 mile visit will take you more than 2 hours. We decided to stop by on our way home. We didn’t have time to look at everything. This place is amazing and beautiful and you can feel the...More

Our tour of this park was excellent and fascinating. We were given very helpful information about the tour from the personnel in the ticket office. Our only regret was we ran out of time. You need a good 3 hours to attempt to enjoy every...More
