During this visit, I finally decided that I was going to hike around the entire Chimney Rock formation! I followed the trail to the very end which was on the far western side of this formation. There were no trails to follow, So I had to climb & hike over the rugged terrain. While doing so I had to make sure that I walked hard so the rattle snakes would feel me coming. Snakes do not hear, They feel the vibrations through the ground. While hiking around the entire formation. I took pictures & film footage as I went. It was a rather rough & rugged hike, But I was sure glad that I had done it. It was actually a lot of fun!
