Hiking. Cool places.

This is about the hotel/spa. Interesting place. It was so many things in it's short history. Now it is just a shell. I would have loved to have seen it in all it's glory!
Pictures don't do it justice! It is just beautiful! Even though all that is left is the shell. Interesting history. From Hotel/spa to bar. Haunted? I wouldn't doubt it. So many ledgends attached to this building.
Going down! This staircase brings you down under the bluff/caves and hotel. Lots of caves in the bluffs. Not a lot of sun light gets down there so there is a lot of moss covered rocks. A lot different then other hikes I have been on. This was the last weekend that the park is open for the season. I want to go back next year for the tour when we can go into the big cave.
Interesting tree! There were a lot of deformed trees. But I guess if you had your feet in rocks YOU would be different then if you grew in good soil! But it sure makes for some interesting tree shpes.
A view a long the river. This is in the lowest part of the park. You go from the hotel to caves to mossy rocks, deformed trees to a river. Very diverse area.
Up the road from the hotel and caves we come to Devil River Camp Grounds. Actually the camp is up a steep hill from this "village". Headquarters is in one of these buildings.
The old mill.
Love this picture! Pretty site.
Three of the buildings. Old wagon in the middle building. We had a great time hiking on Saturday. Just think these places are only about 1/2 hour from where we live. Interesting what you find right of a hi-way. It was hard to just pick a few pictures. There were so many interesting things at these places.

  1. What a serene scene. Kind of sad that it is not still operating, though. Thanks for visiting my blog. The little sugar cube decorations are just icing "flowers". I think when they were first made they were not so flat looking.
