The two photos I did post were taken at the second park, Elephant Rocks. That's my hubby standing in front of one rock, this boulder is small compared to many there. I was more impressed by this park for the simple fact that the rocks are awesome! Found by a quarry owner but in the same volcano region. In fact this area was once a volcano about 10 miles wide. If you are ever in doubt simply looking at such marvels like these will reassure you. I was in awe! We walked the path and maze to the top where we could see the whole valley below. I have more photos on my Flickr page of the rocks and lake .
A day trip like this is almost better than a vacation, you get away but not too far and you take in your states natural beauty. We plan to return with kids in tow in the fall when the leaves have turned, it will be stunning! So, needless to say, I haven't had time to bake the yummy recipes I posted during the week but the root beer float cake will be baked this weekend for my oldest son's birthday. One more thing, if you signed up for the tag pad swap, please email me with your mailing info so I can get the list together and the pad in the mail. Happy Monday!
