  • I was driving for that route n wonder where i can take my break of 10hrs n a driver told me about this place i stay there n i like it thats a nice place ....
  • I went here in 2007, with my wife, to visit relatives, and we spent a morning at the Rock. My wife was an MS patient, and she worked really hard to walk with me, and did pretty well, considering. Six years later, she passed on. Now I have the memory, and a few pictures of that day. The Rock has it's own meaning to me, and it will always be there, as a reminder of us.
  • We felt this remote historical site is in general underwhelming. However, we benefit greatly from the rest stop and the great landscape surrounding the hugh rock.
  • What a neat place! It's a great stop to get out, stretch your legs and see an amazing historic place. Plus it's FREE!
  • It was ok but if i were you id rather not really go because the derections were wrong!πŸ˜­πŸ‘ΏπŸ˜‘πŸ˜•πŸ‘Šβœ‹
