This place is the one we have continued talking about after we left. TripAdvisor doesn't lie-- it's #1. The scenery all over JTNP is unique, but the ambiance in this valley was truly unique. I loved the history (cattle?!), the fun rocks to climb around...More

The place where cattle thieves hid their cattle. Very interesting vegetation - much more lush than the rest of the park. Interesting rock formation. A hike for everyone - not strenuous at all.

This is really a unique feature of this park and was a place where the cattlemen "hid" their cattle in a natural corral hidden in the hills.
