Visited in early August. Slightly cooler than the city, but still high 90's and low 100's. Awesome geology. Good gift shop. The construction (repaving roads) was merely a nuisance. I was surprised at the amount of vegetation.

You can buy a pass for all the national parks, which is pretty cheap or you can buy a day pass. Avoid going here June, July, August during the day time, it gets really really hot. An amazing place to hike, photo shoot, video shoot,...More

The roads are a bit winding but it is traveled at a slow pace (I think it was about 25/mph). Also there are numerous stops along the way. The road is one way only. Once you start, you must go to the end. You might prefer to... More
