I think I took about 500 photos. The red rocks are really breathtaking. There is a lot of good hiking but you really need to take your time to enjoy all of the views.

Well maintained forest of post lumber industry harvests. This area was originally old growth forests which were heavily exploited. The Forest Service has done a great job of restoration.

This National forest is huge. We are from the east, so to see a forest without trees was very odd for us. We just drove through this area on our way to other sights.
