After giving up on reaching the peak of the park, we hiked back to the car. On the way back, we noticed a nice lookout point on the path that we hadn't noticed at all on the initial walk through. I guess we were really wrapped up in our conversation.
The lookout point was present because of the powerlines running over the mountain, so I got a few interesting shots of those as well.
And then we headed back down. Slowly.
Upon reaching the bottom, we rested for a while in the cute little park across the street before mustering the energy to get in the car and drive back to the motel. This bench was a welcome sight.
