  • Gorgeous place to watch sunrise. The sun lights up the mountains and the reflection on the river is really pretty. Get there early though. There were maybe 75+ people there with their cameras set up. The vast majority were huddled together in one blob so, as usual, if you walk a little bit you can find a great spot all to yourself with a different perspective.
  • Walk down to the water from the parking lot. Early mornins are best if you're looking for reflections in the water.
  • Nice place to stop and view wildlife. Just beware the mosquitoes (depending on season).
  • Nice
  • Beautiful!
