Such a beautiful place, wish we had more time. It was raining, so we couldn't drive up Mount Scott, but we explored the park, hiked a few trails, and saw the Prairie Dogs - which was the highlight of my trip. Worth it to drive to the visitor center, since I found it hard to figure out where everything was, there are not a lot of maps online. Unfortunately, because of this we missed the Holy City, and since we were on a strict timeline, we couldn't backtrack. Look for a map of the area first, maybe in a visitor center outside of the area will have one.

My daughter and I spent the day driving around the park and even walked a few trails. It is a wonderful area. We loved the wildlife and beautiful scenery. Wish we would have known that the Holy City is only open certain hours and certain days of the week. Unfortunately we had to miss that area. Still a great day trip. *I suggest to any future visitors to call ahead for hours.

Really love this place. Wish we could've spent days out here instead of hours. Very beautiful scenery. We also really like the holy city.
