  • Absolute must see. There are many things to see and do in this area but this one is right off the road and offers incredible photo ops or a nice little hike. This area is stunning. One of my favorite places in one of the most beautiful parks on Earth.
  • This is a quick visit, roadside waterfall. It is impressive in the sense that it has such amazing scenery with the parking lot right there. You can definitely hike along the river and up to the main Lodge for even more scenery. But if you are short on time or have mobility issues, this is a great option for some wonderful pictures.
