My husband loved driving this part of the road. There were several pull offs so you could take all the pics you wanted. Beautiful.

This state park is beautiful. The needles eye are great to see and the one car tunnels are fun to drive through

Nice fun drive even in the light rain. Spent many summers driving up to see this as a kid. First time I’ve taken my family and it was as great as I remembered

Truly amazing scenery. The road was quite narrow in places so it was a bit scary at times. Plenty of places to pull off for pictures.

If you don't mind hair-pin turns and lots of switch-backs, this is a fabulous drive. The rock formations and mountain views are super.
