It's hard to describe to someone who hasn't done it what this is like. But, a hiker has recorded a video and captured much of what makes camping near the City of Rocks such an amazing experience.

It's based around taking his dog, Rocky, for a walk. As you will see in the video, this guy chose just about the perfect day to do this. He begins his stroll and takes in the amazing vistas that make the City of Rocks one of the best parts of Southern Idaho.

I'm not going to assume you've lived here your entire life. If you've never made the trip, it's a easy drive from Twin as long as you don't mind off-road travel for the last part of it.

I won't repeat my now-famous, but failed effort to reach the City of Rocks. If you can get there before the weather turns, it's a highly recommended experience.
