What’s Behind This Big Pile of Boulders?

It might look like a simple, rustic hiking spot. But there’s a lot more to see and do at this popular national destination.

What’s Behind This Big Pile of Boulders?

While you can’t tell it from this photo, these six PolyPortables, a division of Satellite, restrooms are nowhere near enough to handle the crowds at this location. Not too far away are public bathrooms carved into huge rock formations. This setting looks peaceful and serene, but it soon became loud and raucous and the beer was flowing. This landmark is in a park covering 868 acres and has been a public gathering spot for more than a century. A big project of the Civilian Conservation Corps, the New Deal work program of the 1930s, was completed here. It hardly looks like it from this vantage point, but at one time this American attraction was listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Important numbers to remember about this landmark: 6,450 and 9,525.

 Take a look at these clues, and see if you can identify the exact location of this photo.

1. The nearby town shares the same name as a famous 1960s rock singer who died too soon.

2. John Denver.

3. It’s more likely you’ll recognize what’s on the other side of this rock formation.

4. Your vacuum truck better have a pump with plenty of CFMs to clean these units.

5. Sometimes you need a ticket to enter, but everyday people just come here to run up and down stairs.

6. Many celebrities work here every summer.
