Pano of Chimney Rock in summer

Chimney Rock is a popular destination in the park. This is the view in summer. Note the deep crevices that appear in this picture; hikers are warned to be careful around them, but nearly every year someone falls down them, like this incident in 2016, which was not unusual.


Pano of Chimney Rock in winter

Chimney Rock in winter with snow is so different and dramatic ... and also more dangerous due to slipping into one of those deep crevices
