Lots and lots of fossils to view and take pictures of if you take the time to look. The views are spectacular but could have been better as the horizon was filled with smoke from local wildfires and stifled the views.

Because we had winter season passes, they entitled us to 2 free summer lifts on the Timber chair so we could access the Ridge walk. This is not a 'walk in the park' but a thoroughly enjoyable hike, involving cables at one point, to Polar...More
