I wasn't sure what to expect. I am in the area working and didn't want to sit in the motel room on this beautiful day, so I searched for something to do. It was well worth the 30 min drive up there. I enjoyed learning...More

If you don't have GPS the odds of finding this are fair to middling. Even with GPS it wasn't easy to find but well worth it. The history behind the settlement and going through the LaPorte's house was very interesting. The view is spectacular and...More
