|That shouldn't be too hard a climb|
|I was wrong - 350 steps wrong. This is the view from the top.|
You can see the photo of children sitting in front of the open book at the top of the stairs. The staff at the gift shop later confirmed there were over 350 steps to the top. Since they were first installed I suspect the ground has shifted as very few of the stairs are the same height or level and some of the hand rails are worn and fallen away. Although this would probably not be considered "work safe" it was worth the climb to the top.
Our wobbly legs whole we wandered through the gift shop were confirmed by the health app on the iPhone saying we had climbed 16 floors.

Initially we were concerned we missed the Fall changing of the leaves when we saw the lovely green woods and mountains. Yet in two short weeks the whole area was transforming into brilliant yellow, orange and red. The bottom photo shows our final view from the cabin. Compare it to the first view to see the difference.

But it was all worth it.
