  • This 10 mile (each way) road is utterly amazing. The last 2.5 miles are on gravel road that are also well worth taking. Amazing vistas throughout the drive, with plenty of pull-outs. A standout was go...  more »
  • Scenery far away from tourism. Here, the true grandeur of nature is visible. The "different perspective" on this bizarre rock formations will take away the language

  • Oddly, this is probably the most magical moment that we spent in 1 month in the American West. All started with an error in the GPS. There did us not take the road I had planned initially except that I did not realized immediately. Actually it is once well underway at the heart of "Head Of The Rocks" that we started to seriously worry! From the desert to the horizon, we meet no other vehicle, the thought that comes to mind "oulala is not the moment to crash!". A magical descent which curves very tight (and still the matter of oulala but we're landing where?) but the landscapes are more amazing with each other, colors more crazy succeeding, sky blue, yellow, Orange, green, purple, mauve... Finally we did the whole track (in SUV) to Fruita Schoolhouse originally envisaged. I think it took us 3 good, H. Happiness in the rough, I think that the unexpected contributed even more. I RECOMMEND to 200%!
