Rock Garden

I easily could have spent more time here marveling the details of each structure. The workmanship is fantastic and there was way more to see than I expected. An incredibly satisfying visit.

Aside from the fact it was extremely hot, it was really awesome! There are plenty of photo opportunities with the many castles and structures. There is also a swing and some other seating areas in the shade.

Rock Garden Cathedral

Interesting rock garden with structures made from stones. It's on property in the back of a church.
