» valley of the slanted rocks
We spent very little time in Roxborough, but Roxoborough should not take this personally. It is a very beautiful park. Some day I am sure it will find someone to settle down with and it will make them very happy. We just didn't have much time but we were in the area, so why not have a look? We hiked the 1.3 miles (roundtrip) to the Lyons Overlook and then hightailed it out of there before Roxborough got all emotional on us. As you might imagine, the scenery would look much better if there were leaves, or snow, or something.

Near the Lyons Overlook.

This would probably look more scenic with leaves on the trees.
