Did you ever think, hey those mountians are 300 miles away? Well on a clear day you can see forever up here. Stunning vistas, scenery and very little traffic.

The best the Rocky Mountains have to offer. This is an unforgettable trip, especially when the summer turns to fall, and the aspen trees change colors... Don't forget your camera!

A big WOW and a must do drive if your in the area. The fall colors and views were some of the the best . Can't wait to do this trip again next fall.
