The drive to the park from highway has amazing views. Amazing park. Lucky to spot cute Red Fox and Deer. The staffs are friendly and very helpful. Make sure you give enough time.

I only got to spend little time here as I was traveling through. Though the time spent here was just amazing. The park has much to offer and a lot of wildlife that as a photographer I loved! Not to mention the nature and the trails. There are tons of trails marked out with distances of all kinds. So you can choose how long you want to hike around and explore.
