Everything is so large that it was almost impossible to get any good pictures, the guide takes you back about 2800 feet and at one point you’re standing on a ledge and you can see for 800 feet both in front of you and behind. There wasn’t a lot of color in the rocks or formations but just the shear size of everything makes this worth taking the tour.
The one night we were there they had a mini rodeo, this was just for kids 12 and under, some of the kids were pretty good as you can see in the pictures. The really young ones 4 & 5 were strapped into the saddles so they couldn’t fall off, some had a look on their face of pure joy and others had the look that said “Dad I’ll never forgive you for this”. The funny part was they had stick horses, you know like a broom stick with a horse head on it, and the kids do the race around the barrels, boy they were giving it everything they had.
There was a contest going on for the best scarecrow, there had to be about 100 of them scattered through out the gardens
