This is a great drive that we did over two days. Driving over the mountains and stopping at the overlooks and viewing wildlife was amazing. We were able to see moose, deer, fox, cranes, went to a wild horse area. Great all the way around.

What a beautiful place to spend time when you are in the area. We loved the peace and silence and we were lucky enough to see moose - about 7 of them in total.
