  • Made this drive multiple times but this time the fog and rain made the drive very memorable. Lots of places to stop and take pics. Lots of trails around and the drive isn't too long. 
  • This is a beautiful drive with amazing rock formations. You also drive through a tunnel. The highlight was the herds of Bighorn Sheep. 
  • Lots of wildlife and scenic views. It's a four mile trip and worth it. Take your time and enjoy the views.
