... gorge run by a super nice guy and his vegan cooking wife. It was great hanging out with the other guests and getting to know the staff. I took a bus out to the famous bridge and I was lucky to get there before the crowds. It was cool, but then what? You really need a car to get yourself to a trailhead.
