Be sure to take the guided tour. So much history here. Pre-concieved ideas went right out the window. Don't skip the gift shop. More local history. The monument does close for the season at the end of September.

We took the guided tour with Ranger Rachel. She did a wonderful job of telling us about the Indian ruins and history of the area. The guided tour includes walking up to 7,600 foot peak. You can see for miles and miles!
