It's all still there. Impressive visit. Loved walking around. You wouldn't even know it's there if it wasn't for Roadtrippers. The cows were moooing loudly at the nearby ranch.
After a 4 hour drive, we enjoyed getting out and taking the short walk to the Spires Overlook. Off of Hwy 83, turn-off is a gravel road. Go to Monument Rocks too - that was very impressive as well.
Arrived here after hours. Loved the sculpture and the story board about the 'real' Buffalo Bill.
What an awesome stop! This is the biggest cavern we've been too. They had knowledgable guides throughout the cavern. They used to have guided tours before covid and you can tell the guides miss doing the tours. This was a self-guided tour. Looks kinda touristy - but well worth it! Even the car museum was fun to visit (included with your ticket). Took about an hour to go through the cavern and half an hour for the toy and car museum. Fantastic stop.
We enjoyed visiting the Biltmore Estate. It is quite pricey at $110 pp. for the self-guided tour, visiting the gardens and enjoying the free wine-tasting in Antler Hill village. This was a spur of the moment stop for us. We arrived at 12:30 and our house tour was scheduled for 4:15. There is a limited number of tickets. On a busy day you may need to get there way before 12:30; we suggest you buy the tickets online. You also have to set an appointment for the winery online as well. They don't take walk-ups. Once we received our timed ticket, we immediately went online and was able to get a winery appointment at 1:15. If you're going to the village, you should give yourself about 35 to 45 minutes to get to/from the house. The gardens were just starting to bloom with Spring tulips. The house tour took about 1 1/2 hours. There are stairs for the upper floors. Don't know if the elevator was available. We were quite surprised it took that long, but we did thoroughly enjoy the tour. You could spend all day there with the village down the road. We left the property about 6:00pm.
This was fun just to get a selfie.
We hiked the trail(s) here and were very impressed with being very close to the red rock formations. Not as touristy as the Garden of the Gods. Best to go during Spring and Fall. Very hot in summer. Lots of parking, porta-poties available. Garden of the Gods is in the distance once you reach a higher elevation.
