I love how trees grow around rocks:
We went to Arch Rock first:
My sister is visiting for the week!
My daughter wanted a picture of them yelling like they're falling:
A side view of Arch Rock:
The coin operated viewers are removed during the winter season:
The beautiful woods:
A cool view off Manitou Trail:
This is where the previous picture was taken from (reminds me a little of Pride Rock from the Lion King):
Some parts of the trail are narrow and along a big dropoff/cliff. Made us a smidge nervous with the girls, so we partnered with them in more dangerous sections:
The trail goes past a couple homes at one point. I liked the old ladder hiding behind the shrubs:
This sign is in the middle of the trail. I have no idea how anyone with a horse would get out to this area or need to read the sign. So funny!
View of Round Island from Robinson's Folly:
Mission Point Resort:
The sinking sun:
The girls had a splendid sword fight with sticks:
Daddy was incredibly helpful:
We made it!
The trail brought us to the east bluff. I'm not used to seeing Mission Point from this point of view. I forget how large the Main Lodge is!
Her stick made it all the way!
The Baby Grand:
A bunny near the theater:
Some tulips are showing their colors:
They survived the frosts & snow!
We enjoyed our trek along Manitou Trail! It was a beautiful little adventure and I recommend it!
