Park
“Continuously flowing glacial meltwater gouged a line of smooth tubs in gritty sandstone over 12,000 years ago. Go on the trail around the tubs climbing uphill first (not super kid or dog friendly) or try the paved path that travels over a mile downstream to a dam.”

Scenic Viewpoint
“What a cool spot! You'll have to see the pictures to best understand what it is but it's a huge field (duh!) that was carved out by (what they think was) a glacier from the last ice age. You can spend a lot of time out there, it's pretty surreal.”
