At one stop we took a free Ranger tour and learned the history of the park, the geological history, and how plants such as the yucca and Juniper and piñon trees were used by the indigenous people. It was very interesting walk although one place was a scramble and I need a hand to climb up it. I recommend taking at least one Ranger led tour.
An exciting moment happened early on as we were chatting with a Canadian couple when someone glided off some rocks across from us which is illegal here in the park.
It did get warm in the afternoon so I would recommend an early start. Every one should visit this park at least once.
