    Like some other visitors have already written, should best be very early here we, because of the heat and also time to bring. The place inspires all those who can engage in it and feel the Wild West when entering the Canyon here. With good shoes, plenty of water (if necessary something to eat) and good sunscreen ready to go - don't forget the camera.

For everyone else that nothing to do with "Stones" and wild nature know - stay away!
