I wanted to see the gardens despite the first snow of the season. It was delightful, especially covered in white snow and icicles. What a charming garden to visit any time of the year.

Garden was blooming and waterfalls flowing in this early Fall timeframe. Wedding party was using the gardens for photography, which was outstanding in the warm Fall weather. Great garden for looking at various plants, or just sitting on one of the many benches and reading a good book.

Nice gardens and they are free, nothing to base a whole trip on though, but worth the walk if you are in Vail
