Amazing rock formations and canyons. Crowded like a zoo and lots of obnoxious radios playing

My wife and I did this trail with our beagle Reese. Although it was pretty muddy with all the rain we have had this spring, it was a nice hike.

We hit the top loop first and saw people in the water at the bottom so we found the stairs to take us down. Great for pictures and cooling off.
