What a gorgeous, unique corner of the world. One of the few places in the world where the earth’s mantle is on the surface. Well worth the visit. The walk into the lookout is not strenuous at all. Children can do it. The walk up...More

This hike was very cool, especially for this amateur geology fanatic. The earth's mantle is a 3000 km layer under the earth's crust that is exposed at this park. The rock you see here is like no other and kept me captivated. If you don't...More
