    This was my second book on this once grand park which was located high on the cliffs above the river. I enjoyed the easy reading style of the book along with a large amount of photos thrown in. I wish the photos overall would have been a bit larger though. In addition to the easy reading style the book was enjoyable and informative. It did not make my top 10 all time list in this genre but I do recommended it none the less. I rate this one a 7.5/10.
