Foothills Parkway 5-23-09

This is a scenic parkway near our town.  We never had ventured up it before, so while we were killing time it seemed the perfect opportunity!

The sign said it was 11 miles to Look Out Rock.  So, we made that our goal.

Here are some pics of the drive up to the parking lot for Look Out Rock….

Here is a panoramic (poorly done by moi) of the view off of the lower rock.

Panarama lookout

The actual tower is a .5 mile hike up to it and then another .5 mile back down.  Pretty steep going up, but paved.

Some views from atop…

Here is a picture of a ‘nice boulder’.  The kids said it was Donkey’s boulder (off of Shrek)…..
