We did the hike from the Loop via Nature’s Window down to the canyon. Beautiful, but tough (high temperatures, so go early!). Not too many people around.

We stopped here for a short walk before getting back to the campsite. It was so beautiful. The walk wasn’t very hard and everybody enjoyed it. It’s so good to be surrounded by nature.
