It's almost disappointing to find out that this is right off the interstate. Like it has its own exit, basically.

Luckily, however, I visited before tourist season, so there were relatively few people there.

I really liked the light. It was almost a backlit situation. It allowed the sun to streak through the haze which I think helps give a mystical quality to the image.

I was just there again this July, and there were almost too many people to move around. It was basically shoulder-to-shoulder. I don't think I shot a single photo.

I did find, however, that later in the afternoon the light is nowhere near as pretty as it is earlier in the morning.
