This little walk is a lot shorter than expected. It makes for a great option for those who are on a tight time schedule or physically not so fit. The scenery is still stunning.

Very beautiful part of the world. Water was a bit murky after the storm a couple of days ago, usually crystal clear. Kids loved jumping in, even though water was freezing.
