Valley Falls State Park is simply beautiful.
And we can't beat it for convenience. It's only 5 miles from our house. It used to be the site of a lumber and grist mill, but now it simply serves as a place to relax and take in the beauty of nature. Before this became a State Park, it was a booming railroad community. Now, it's rare to find anyone there but our family.
Today, however, being Independence Day, it was nice to see the park in full use. Click on these panoramic photos to view larger.
An Overdue Hike - It seems like ages since I ventured out on a sunset hike in the Haskell Canyon Open Space.
