Inscription.  
Because of its distinctive rock work and spectacular views, the Tumble Inn was known as one of the loveliest locations on the ridge. From here travelers had breathtaking views of the Liebre Mountains to the east and coastal ranges to the west. Can you match the stone work still here to the picture?

Debido al trabajo en la roca y a su vista espectacular, el Tumble Inn fue conocido como uno de los lugares más hermosos de la cresta. De aquí, los viajeros podían admirar las maravillosas Liebre Mountains al este y las cordilleras costeras al oeste. ¿Puede usted igualar el trabajo de la roca, que permanence, con la fotografia?
