    A beautiful natural landmark. The visitor center provided copious amounts information. I even went back to see it lighted at night. I am a fan.

    Wish it was a little closer to the actual Chimney Rock but cool all the same. Kids loved "loading their wagon" for the trip in the visitors center.
