     This Nature Trail is a hike within a hike that most people overlook.
     It is truly wonderful and will be the subject of my next photo diary.

     I hope you enjoyed this virtual trip to a special place.
     The photos do not truly capture what it is like to be there.
     If you do go there, try and arrive early (7 AM) and drive up to the parking area.
     The tram tours start around 9 AM if that is your thing.
     See the NPS web page linked at the top for disabled special touring info.
     Thank you for viewing my photos!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
