Road began paved, then graveled, then dirt and then " is this a road? " . Beautiful scenery all the way but you must travel slowly. Were treated to the sighting of three desert bighorn sheep just after we cleared the huge rock. Would say...More

Wow. Glad my 4x4 guide was experienced. Would not have done it in my own vehicle. It was an awesome road with great views and twists and turns.
