The sign in this picture alerts visitors that they are entering bear and mountain lion country. Unfortunately, I saw neither. Park rangers do say that mountain lion sightings are rare. But they want you to report any such sighting to them.
This is a view of the peak of the mountain in the first picture. The rock formations are so much more impressive in person than can be communicated via a photo.
I camped out at the park for one night and in the morning was greeted by these javelinas (sometimes referred to as wild pigs). I have read that this is a common sighting at the park's campground.
