Went up to see the end of the "Super Bloom" and found some lovely specimens, but not many. Started at 70 degrees and ended up at 30 degrees and 2 inches of slushy snow, but the views are beautiful.

Stunning views, the drive is incredible through these very high desert mountains. Seeing combat aircraft a few hundred feet off the deck was very cool and surprising.

This road is really windy and steep. Take your time. No opportunities to pull over and enjoy the view. Pay attention to the road

Beautiful expanse of granite with varied color striations. Looks like a geological history of the area writ large.

The colors are beautiful but be prepared for a very winding road up and down through the mountains. The views are spectacular.
