This was our second trip to this magnificent piece of geology in the last decade. I always time it to avoid having to take the mandatory shuttle, and the crowds. Midday Friday in mid-October had more than enough people for me! As a visitor to the State & National Parks for over 3 decades, I'm outraged at having to pay entrance fees everywhere now, $10 here, and seeing the facilities in such a poor state. The visitor's center was closed. Many bathrooms around, but only one pit toilet open. Ridiculous! No park employees at the trailhead the entire time we were there. And, the handicapped ramp access, just as you arrive at the Postpile, had its handrail disassembled and lying on the ground. I know the geology behind this rock formation, but nowhere did I see anything posted to educate the public. Finally, even though it's permitted, do not take a motorhome down here. Sure, it could be done carefully, but, as is usually the case, only the rental units with inexperienced RV drivers do it.
