What a gorgeous drive with outstanding scenery. At times you wonder whether or not the road has disappeared. Numerous pull-offs for photo.ops.

We did this drive around 18 years ago, as we passed it, I decided to do it again. I'm sure they had not found the dinosaur prints last time, but they are there and visible. The views are amazing!

Made the drive up this very narrow road early on Sunday morning before we left the area and took some great photos of the sunrise.

I learned I am not afraid of heights, I am afraid of drop offs. This has stellar views, if you can master your fear of heights. Glad I went.
