  • Interesting tour of President Hoovers retreat. Not a lot to see but it is a nice slice of nature and the National Parks ranger guide was excellent and well worth the $10 per person ticket price and the 3 hours spent.
  • Very interesting. We hiked in instead of using the van. Easy hike with 3 stream crossings but all either had logs or rocks to walk on without getting feet wet. One of the buildings was open for self exploration but there was also a ranger there assigned to host hikers and guide us through the main cabin. We got there a little late in the day but she was very accommodating to offer a great and interesting tour.
