|Snow in the waterfall.|
|The trees are bent due to the amount of snow they hold up each year. They have an average of 26-30 feet of snow each year.|
Mama said they were on the lookout for animals, but only saw two chipmunks. One chipmunk ran out into the road and was killed by the car in front of them. :-( Mama was hoping to see other wildlife. She prefers to see wildlife that is alive. BOL!
They didn't walk on any trails due to not having much time. Basically, it was a 5 hour round trip. They may go back before we leave here and explore other parts of the park.
Dogs are allowed in parking lots and in the campground, but not on trails due to the wildlife. I doubt we will get to go.
