So, I drove 4 hours to see this majestic little piece of paridise to find....HOMELESS CAMPS! I counted 6 within a half mile from the parking area. The parking area is right on the main road, which is convenient, if you want your car broke into. There was trash everywhere, and people racing up and down the road. This is sickening.
