    Beautiful stop for a day of nature and learning. Made a vacation strictly to go see this stop and it was great. Saw wildlife and had an amazing cat tour guide who walked with us and kept me and my SO company. (We walked in as soon as the doors opened and were all alone.) Great stop if you want to walk a trail and take in the beauty. Interesting array of gems and geodes and other interesting displays they've built.
