  • This was one of the 1st stops on our day tour. It was interesting to read the bits about this gun & see the views. I would say it is worthwhile for the whole history of the area.  more »

  • Loved this place. So much time and care has obviously gone into setting this up and making it easy to imagine the past. Not very crowded, it's away off the beaten path. But seriously if you're considering seeing the sites on the rock, you don't want to miss this. We took a cab though. Mom was tired. 😴 😂😘
  • Well presented facts about an astonishing piece of old engineering
