If you dont travel anywhere else then make sure you do Standley Chasm. Some say its best at midday but as a photographer it is definitely better one hour before midday and one hour after.

great landscape and if you make the effort to read the signs you can learn a lot about the area and history. Lovely staff at the kiosk and food quite ok.

A beautiful trail follows a small creek to the chasm. We spotted several different birds on the short walk. It was early morning so the sun was coming in from the opposite side. It was very beautiful.
