All these photos were taken within a few yards of the car. If you are planning a trip this way you can check out the interactive map as well. Absolutely breathtaking. I wish I could have filmed the entire drive through the tight twists and turns.
There were many interesting stops, hotels, shops, gas stations, rock shops, and other tourist traps along the way. We picked up a couple small souvenirs along the route. There was a native american flute shop that had pretty decent prices on their wares as well. Our favorite site was a small camp ground tucked into the canyon. Unfortunately they were booked for the night. But we will plan on staying there when we travel through Utah again.

The extra wide patch of dirt here in the pull off we are standing on, don't become disillusioned for any reason and think this highway has shoulders.
