I didn't know what to expect but if you have time to explore, add this unique place to your list. The special geological formations reminded me of the beauty of the Grand Canyon in the US on a smaller scale. It's great that we can...More

I’ve visited lots of spectacular sights over the years, but this has to rate one of the most amazing I have seen. I thought Bryce Cannon and the red cliffs in Denver but this out passes those. Because we visited in October there weren’t as...More

We visited it in October and we were lucky to have a warm and sunny Weather. We took the “long path”, and we spent 50 minutes walking relaxed. The view and colors are impresive, totally worth it!

Where else in the world can you see a spectacular array of color resulting from ancient depositional processes. We saw several artists along the trail trying to capture the colors better than any camera can do. Beautiful trees and a lovely trail. Wear comfortable shoes...More

We loved this place. We took the longer walk and were glad we did. It only took about an hour, and we stopped along the way to have a little picnic. It was really hot, so it’s good to have some cold water for along...More

It's like walking trough a red sand canyon, very pleasant and great with kids. It's best to ware closed shoes as the red sand sticks on your feet & shoes.

The highlight of the visit is certainly in the first open area which was remarkably dazzling and I think the loop really serves to allow 3 separate views of this area. Noting the reviews above I certainly agreed with my fellow compatriot that the remainder...More

C'est interdit mais vous pourrez trover beaucoup de beaux lieux tout au tour, dans le village ou dans la campagne. Les paysages sont très jolis, vous pouvez picniquer aussi près de la lavande.
